Unity In Motion, Unity At Rest

Lessons In Truth
H. Emilie Cady

"Full of wonder is the pure illumination.
The moon's appearance, a river of stars.
Snow-clad pines, clouds hovering on mountain peeks,
In darkness, they glow with brightness.
In shadows, they shine with a splendid light,
Like the dreaming of a crane flying in empty space,
Like the clear, still water of an autumn pool.
Endless eons dissolve into nothingness,
Each indistinguishable from the other.
In this illumination all striving is forgotten."

Zen Writing-
Hung Chih Cheng-Chueh
11th-12th Century
