Up before the sun

Early morning sky,
stars still bright as diamonds …
nothing special.

__________

Become totally empty
Quiet the restlessness of the mind
Only then will you witness everything unfolding from emptiness

(Lao Tzu)

Emperor Wu of Liang asked the great master Bodhidharma, “What is the main point of this holy teaching?”

“Vast emptiness, nothing holy,” said Bodhidharma.
