Know?

It is beyond words. In fact, I don't even know what 'It' is. Yet It pervades me and overwhelms me like the blue sky. But one thing I do know: I don't know. 'I don't know' is a powerful mantra for cleansing the mind and opening the heart. I'm sharing this because I've noticed that so many people think they know WTF is going on. I don't envy them.

Painting, 'Meditating Daruma' by Konoe Nobutada, b. 1565. Daruna brought Buddhism to China. The emperor interrogated him. 'What have you accomplished,' the emperor asked.

'Nothing,' he replied.

'What merit have you achieved?'

'None.'

'What is your teaching?'

'Don't know.'
