Unfettered at last, a traveling monk,
I pass the old Zen barrier.
Mine is a traceless stream-and-cloud life,
Of these mountains, which shall be my home?

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

Neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: 'Certainly, this is not the Blessed One's utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.' In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it. (DN 16)

The Windmills of Your Mind

phpBB [video]


Round like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending on beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of its own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half-forgotten dream
Or the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle in your head
Why did summer go so quickly?
Was it something that I said?
Lovers walk along a shore
And leave their footprints in the sand
Was the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?
Pictures hanging in a hallway
Or the fragment of a song
Half-remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong?
When you knew that it was over
Were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of her hair?

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

My niece had a singer at her wedding and this is one of the songs was sung. It brought tears to my eyes. I thought of Ron (those that remember me from e-Sangha days may remember that story) and how I wish he could hear the words.

"Say you need me with you now and always..." Say you need me with you here beside you." "Say you love me." Any of those words would have made all the difference in the world.

Then, my niece walked down the aisle to Pachelbel's Canon, which played at the end of my marriage ceremony. I have been listening to the many versions out there of this song!

My avatar is one of many calligraphies painted by my teacher. Mitra Bishop, Roshi. She has them for sale to try to raise money for her building project. Also, if you purchase books on Amazon, you can use Amazon Smile and put in Mountain Gate (In Ojo Sarco, NM) and a small % will go to the monastery.

While in the middle of the winter it's summer
Then in the middle of summer it's freezing cold
And I wonder, who's wet behind their ears?

A broken world, well ain't that a bummer?
To get from mammoth to pizza took us 27, 000 well spent years

I'm gonna get out of the broken world
I'm just about to discover new land
Get out of the broken world and start a meditation retreat (band)

Turn on the tv I see troubles of mankind
There is a weird old man who's sayin'
"I'm the decider, you've gotta stay that course"

All of a sudden I've got Shakespeare on my mind,
All of a sudden Richard goes
"horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse"

I'm gonna get out of the broken world
I'm just about to discover new land
Get out of the broken world and start a meditation retreat (band)

Higher than lordship over all earth,
Higher than sojourning in heavens supreme,
Higher than empire over all the worlds,
Is Fruit of Entrance to the Dhamma Stream.
—Dhammapada
