Words. Groups of words strung together in a way that you can't quite grasp any concrete meaning. You can't say, the way we like to do in Western thought, this equals that. Or even this is like that. But if you are not trying to understand any literal meaning, you might feel a deeper sense of connection with what is beyond yourself. I know I did.
"walk silently within the rainbow light
already you are buddha of infinite sea mind"
"rest peacefully in this essential light home
without gap between you and things"
"do not get caught in the net
of flowery words and ideas"
"trying to get free of life and death
foolish as thinking a beach pebble is gold"
When I just relaxed into those words and images, I felt more peacefulness. The author's poetry like eternity bounds through the ages to today. They sound contemporary but are also ancient. I also found them inspirational, not in the sense of affirming that I am who I am, but I am here--and always.
I would've given this work five stars if it had been at least twice as long. Just too short.
