The Choiceless Choice
In presence, I see that I have never chosen or done anything, but that life
lives through me.
And so I have never stopped the sea or moved the sun or taken one step
nearer or further away from my birthright.
In accepting my divine helplessness, I enjoy the freedom of never having a
past or a future I could call my own.
Some people ask, "Who chooses, who directs this wonderful chaos?" But once
in the arms of the beloved nothing matters, and I can live as though I choose
and rejoice in the letting go.
From the Avadhuta Gita
chapter one verse 51:
When water and water are mixed
There is no difference.
It is the same with matter and spirit.
This is very clear to me now.
"Rejoice for the kingdom of heaven is within!"
"Be a lamp unto yourself!"
"The seeker and the sought are one and the same!"
Dharma words from master Seung Sahn
"What we call 'world' is only an opinion. Take away your opinion, then
what? What is left? That is the point. Take away your opinion-your condition,
situation-then your mind is clear like space. Clear like space means like a
mirror. A mirror reflects everything: the sky is blue, tree is green, sugar is
sweet. Just be one with the truth-that's Zen style. If your mind is clear like
space, then you see clearly, hear clearly, smell clearly-everything is clear.
That is dharma. That is truth.
[from the book One Bird, One Stone by Sean Murphy]
