dwell in emptiness


 

To

realize the Way you

must die and stay dead and

go on living. With one mighty blow,

sever the attachments of mind

and self and dwell in

emptiness.

 

Pouring

emptiness into emptiness

like waves coming to shore,

you become quiet,

luminous,

still.

 

Where

before there were

ten thousand entanglements, now

there is undifferentiated

Oneness, clarity,

peace.

the tao of heaven is impartial


 

In the

reconciling of resentments, 

ill will often lingers. What’s the good

in that? The person who is truly good concerns

herself with what she owes others, never

with what they owe her. The Tao of

heaven is impartial. If you

perpetuate it, it

perpetuates

you.

straight to the root


 

You who lack

self-discipline, be inquiring!

Going straight to the root is the hallmark

of the Buddha; picking up leaves and collecting branches

is no use at all. Most people don’t know the pearl

that answers all wishes.

let us become a bit more like turtles


 

I believe

that our species will

not last long. It does not seem

to be made of the stuff that has allowed

the turtle, for example to continue to exist more

or less unchanged for hundreds of millions of

years; for hundreds of times longer, that is,

than we have even been in existence.

We belong to a short-lived genus

of species. All of our cousins

are already extinct. What’s

more, we do

damage.

 

There

are frontiers where

we are learning, and our desire

for knowledge burns. They are in the

most minute reaches of the fabric of space,

at the origins of the cosmos, in the nature of time,

in the phenomenon of black holes, and in the

workings of our own thought processes.

Here, on the edge of what we know,

in contact with the ocean of the

unknown, shines the mystery

and the beauty of the world.

And it’s breathtaking.

 

Carlo Rovelli
