A Last Joyful Farewell to Our Readers, Thank You Most Heartedly, FAREWELL

From Thomas Merton citing the Anglican contemplative/mystical poet:

"You never enjoy the world aright till the sea itself floweth in your veins, til you are clothed with the heavens and crowned with the stars, and percieve yourself to be the sole heir of the whole wide world, and more then so, because men are in it who are every one are sole heirs with you."

"By this you may know you are infinitely beloved: God has made your spirit a center in eternity comprehending all, and filled by all about you in an endless manner with infinite riches: which shine before you and surround you with divine and heavenly enjoyments."

---Thomas Traherne, CENTURIES OF MEDITATION quoted by Thomas Merton, MYSTICS & ZEN MASTERS


A Monk Asked Ummon: "What is Buddha."
Ummon answered: "Dried Dung."

"Lightning flashes,
Sparks shower,
In one blink of your eyes,
You have missed seeing."

Paul Reps & Nyogen Senzaki, ZEN FLESH, ZEN BONES
