      no guru

       

       

      there is no guru

      anywhere ever

       

      not you not me not he not she

       

      hard words to hear

      if you pretend

      to hear them

      with self-ish ears

       

      but there is no self

      anywhere ever

       

      only clear ears

      and these words

      dancing

      through them

       

      ~ ~ ~

       

      the alone

       

       

      the alone

      is never

      lonely

       

      the alone

      is singularly

      singular

       

      the alone

      appearing as

      everything

      never appears

      as anything

       

      the alone

      is what any

      thing is

       

      you are

      nothing

      other than

      this only

      and singularly

      and un-lonely

      alone

       

      ~ ~ ~

       

      prayer is

       

       

      prayer is

      to whom when

      there’s nothing

      other than

      this

       

      this is

      to whom when

      there’s no way

      other than

      prayer

       

      prayer is

      not to any god

      who or where

      would a god

      be

       

      prayer is

      very plainly

      regardless of god

       

      very causelessly

      and ceaselessly

      so

       

      ~ ~ ~

       

      mountain dust

       

       

      dust seems low

      only to self

       

      dust is not low

       

      a mountain peak seems high

      only to self

       

      a mountain peak is not high

       

      a body

      turns to dust

      and the mind

      might dwell on dust

      and dust

      might join

      a mountain peak

       

      all is presently well

       

      only unreal self

      would seek a peak

      or avoid some dust

       

      all is presently well

       no enlightenment

       

       

      there’s no

      enlightenment

       

      why

       

      there’s no one

      to get or be

      enlightened

       

      like master

      seung sahn

      says

      wanting it is

      a big mistake

       

      tear to pieces

      or unravel

      your

      big mistake

       

      find out

       

      who am i

      what am i

       

      ~ ~ ~

       

      it’s all bulls-eye

       

      don’t miss

       

      ~ ~ ~

       

      let

       

       

      don’t

      be

      only

      an echo

       

      be

      the voicing

      you already are

       

      don’t be ever

      a mere impression

       

      be

      the hand

      strumming

      the strings

       

      let i

      speak

      deeply its

      present end

       

      let every you

      be swallowed by

      never
