FULL POSSESSION VIA TAO ALONE IS SUFFICIENT
QUIETING ALL OTHER VOICES AVALANCHING THIS SOUL AND LIFE
How do you learn his hidden nature?”
“I sit in front of him in silence,
and set up a ladder made of patience,
and if in his presence a language from beyond joy
And beyond grief begins to pour from my chest,
I know that his soul is as deep and bright
as the star Canopus rising over Yemen.
And so when I start speaking a powerful right arm
of words sweeping down, I know him from what I say,
and how I say it, because there’s a window open
between us, mixing the night air of our beings.”
for full article & poem:
of no rain you hear
beneath the dry wind's
commotion in the trees
water among the rocks,
a stream unheard before,
and you are where
breathing is prayer.
But life is neither to be confused with the act of breathing nor with air itself.
Life has its origins in an element higher than air and for which air is a food: fire.
Yes, life originates in fire.
Air serves only to feed this fire, and without the presence of air the fire goes out.
The lungs merely feed the fire that burns in the heart.
The primary cause of life, therefore, is fire,
and air, its brother, sustains and enlivens it.
When man breathes his last, the fire goes out:
the last outbreath extinguishes the fire.
we must pay great attention to the process of respiration.
The ability to breathe does not mean everything is fine.
No, in most people, even though they are alive and breathing,
the process of breathing has become weak, compromised.
This is why they must make the effort to work with the breath so as to animate,
purify and intensify the life within them. »
