BEYOND VOLITION’S PREFERENCES AND EARTHLY MEASURE
A PEACEFUL JOY SUSTAINS

has struck, down there in the depths,
against a great thing.
And nothing happens!
Or has everything happened,
and are we standing now,
in the new life?”
― Juan Ramón Jiménez
Among them all, man alone is more than an object.
Though, like objects, he has form and semblance,
He is not limited to form.
He is more.
He can attain to formlessness.
When he is beyond form and semblance, beyond “this” and “that,”
where is the comparison with another object?
Where is the conflict?
What can stand in his way?
He will rest in his eternal place which is no-place.
He will be hidden in his own unfathomable secret.
His nature sinks to its root in the One.
His vitality, his power hide in secret Tao.
Chuang Tzu, –
you won't understand either your mind or reality.
If you study reality without using your mind,
you'll understand both.
in the miraculous fruition of plants, the formation of eyes and ears,
the circulation of blood and the subtle reticulation of nerves.
Such power is generated without conscious direction,
and the man who has it
will usually be so steeped in ordinariness and anonymity
as to go unnoticed by others.
Yet his action will be the purest,
most effective and powerful of all action
precisely because it coincides
with the universal process itself,
without any sense of volition whatsoever.
Wisdom is inherent in the total acceptance of every situation as it is,
with the awareness of witnessing everything as though in a dream,
keeping trust in the basic and essential harmony
that is the unpreconceived natural intelligence of the universe.

the mountain and me,
until only the mountain remains.
