everything is a tai chi


 

If you go

searching for the Great Creator,

you will come back empty-handed.

The source of the universe is ultimately

unknowable, a great invisible river

flowing forever through a vast

and fertile valley. Silent and

uncreated, it creates

all things.

 

All things

are brought forth from  the

 subtle realm into the manifest world

by the mystical intercourse of yin and yang.

The dynamic river yang pushes forward,

the still valley yin is receptive, and

through their integration things

come into existence. This is

known as the Great

Tai Chi.

 

Tai chi

is the integral truth

of the universe. Everything is

a tai chi: your body, the cosmic body,

form, appearance, wisdom, energy, the unions

of people, the dispersal of time and places.

Each brings itself into existence through

the integration of yin and yang,

maintains itself, and disperses

itself without the direction

of any creator.

 

Your creation,

your self-transformation, the

accumulation of energy and wisdom,

the decline and cessation of your body:

all these take place by themselves

within the subtle operation

of the universe.

 

Therefore

agitated effort is

not necessary. Just be

aware of the Great

Tai Chi.

become intimate with the speed of darkness

natalia jakubek / requiem

 

I have studied and become intimate

with the speed of darkness. It’s so fast

it’s always here. When the light withdraws

the dark comes from no place. It always lives

with us. Your heart and brain are black.

They never see the true light except in violence

or autopsy. Of course the brain can cast

its own blinding light that we wait for in a poem,

at least blinding to us. In our trances the loves

of long ago enter the room unescorted, silent

perhaps from the black bottom of the ocean

where we all die in perfect darkness, a sense

of whirling that recedes back to the time

the ocean swallowed the smallest stars

then heated us into our early life.

Darkness is always there,

it only stands revealed.

simplifying your life


 

Calming

your mind, following

your breath, simplifying your life,

you reduce agitation and worry

with each passing

month.

 


When

genuine stillness

pervades your existence,

the subtle universe appears.

Then you can go anywhere you

like and give yourself

just what you

need.
