in the making, in the end

thinking brought me in
it is also thinking
that brought me out
though the me
was never at all found
except thinking me

the thinking that made me
Is different from
the thinking that leads
to the end of me
thinking with no thinker
except a thinker in the making

thinking is making
and making is
to make up
to make sense
to think out
what is not known yet

but to know
is not to think
and think to know
is not knowing
do I know?
or am i thinking now?

oh dear!
looks like i am confuse
to think or not to think?
know or not to know?
is it really a choice
except thinking about it?

the true way of knowing
is first to think right
without arriving
at a knowing yet
until knowing
how to think right

the way of thinking
is the key of the Way
think right,
me is just another idea
think wrong,
me come to be

to think right
i must ask the One
as to think wrong
is my norm
thus trust not at all
my own thinking

to think right
is to understand the Way
think wrong
is believing my own thoughts
differentiating both
i begin the Way

diligently aware
i think right
knowing wrong thinking
think right again
to think right, an understanding
think wrong, an empty belief

misery is found in thought
freedom too in right thinking
knowing them clearly
the wise travel west
leaving the east behind
as from dark to light.

thinking out me

i know of no tomorrow
not even the next moment
nor even if there is death
except this troubled mind
thinking
and frightened by it

i know not of the past
or even a moment ago
nor was I born
except this troubled mind
thinking
and daydreaming it

i too know not of this moment
who am I
where am I
what am I
other than this trouble mind
thinking
fabricating, living in thoughts

thinking, thinking, thinking
and still NOW thinking
do you not noticed
as you read or hear now?
thoughts are what you believed
including THINKING you

the mind has no you
the body too
except as any other nature
coming and gone
the “you” being thought out
build by thoughts
“you” seems to live on

what a joke, a stupidity
that thoughts can make “you”
except a dream-like
empty, no essence
not even in existence
a joke only to be behold
ha!

attachment, or pain
of worries and tears
happiness and joy too
indeed a joke, a drama
of this mind produce—
thinking to feelings
thinking to feelings…

behold this great Ocean of Dream
of bodily pains
and mental anguishes
never lasting, not even a moment
cannot avoid being experience
but no experiencer at sight
a river-liked, going nowhere

so wakeup my dear friend
be vigilant, aware the mind
to realize
thoughts are mere thoughts
just mind-happenings
empty, passing thru
only to be REALIZED.

me, you, others
experiences coming through
painful, hurting, unimaginable
lonely, fearful
let the Path be the Antidote
the Giver, as to give thanks
your practice, the Receiver
overcoming this Ocean…

perception deception

i am not seeing what my eyes see
am I hearing what my ears hear?
except always intercepted by you
arising between me and the world
never once did you not appear
a transparent veil tainting my world

at each sense door you arise first
presiding in all my experiences
o thou art seen!
never once have I seen the world as it is
whether within or without
as it is you I am always unknowingly seeing

insecurity? Oh my gosh! It’s you!
fear? Again I see it’s you!
happiness? Here you come again to fool me.
bondage? Surely you are the best conjuror!
the prejudices I have upon my brother
is none other than you I am experiencing

the attachment over my sister
again you make me believe in
in pursuit, I chase, over nothing
for it’s you always a moment in front
making me believe there is something
except emptiness in samsara now I see

who are you, the mastermind?
where no meaning once upon a time
meaning come to be
in tears, in joy, in fear – I’m fooled.
emancipation of you is what I wish
yet never will it ever be possible

except to see you clearly each every move
one day I Am, no longer need you.
do what is necessary, Perception
for you are but just a function
with Wisdom, penetrative
Awakening, one day, takes over you.

craving, oh! Mara I am

you will be appalled
without me around
no frills, no spice, no glamor
no excitements for you to enjoy

plain is not what you like, right?
not to mentioned “no feeling”
no fun, no meaning, no hype
no, no, please not you plea.

see, I make your life spicy
from happy lots to grieving rots
with birth fun and death a brunt
like and dislike your only run

you can’t ask for this and not another
for how then can I make you see
that life is colourful
instead, plain and meaningless?

do not forsake me
my plea to you
have me with you
and I will show you what is magic

from mightiest heaven
to deepest dark hell
from unsettling minds
to greatest tranquiilty

all within my capability to offer
a companion you can never do without
mind you, even you is my making
leaving you think you are here

see me clearly
if you can
see me dearly
otherwise

until then I remain the Maker
and you, under my reign
blind you begin, blind you will end
unknowingly under my spell.

which -ward?

it is said defilements lead downward
spiraling one into immense suffering
with unimaginable entanglements
perpetuating wrong views

it is said goodness lead upward
where pleasures are unlimited
day and night intoxicated in it
where enjoyment is all one does

it is said earthling looks forward
of what is important only in this life
caring not whether heaven or hell exist
where insecurity is their daily living

it is said deludedness look backward
enjoying what has gone
or suffering what has passed
totally oblivious now is all there is

downward, upward, forward, backward
are what all sentient beings ride on
unbeknown there is another option
far nobler than them all

some may call it inward
to opposes an outward search
but I say neither of them is true
only to realize what is already now

realization is key
of one that sees correctly
of formations the mind fabricates
endless in cycles until understood

bringing out the best* in you

it is not easy
it is near impossible
to find different ways
to articulate what is in mind
as to show you The Path
that you too can arrive
as to bring out the best in you

without that best
i know what it will be like
lost in the seas of delusion
of pains and sufferings unbearable
of continuous expectations unmet
of daily stress and unrest
till you bring out the best in you

so do bear with me a little
be patient with what is shown
many a time perplexing
and often confusing
but please do not go away
as in your mind I will find my way
as to bring out the best in you

i may not be perfect in expressing
by sheer look I may not be loving
at times with defilements in hand
to find my best may be struggling
but I do have the confidence
that I may rise above all
as to bring out the best in you

deceived not by defilement’s ploy
as yardstick to measure another
but instead, by your own mind
awareness shall be given
beyond this are for each to care
concern not others except kindness
as to bring out the best in you

i am fairly certain and sure
by every skilful pointing
that you will arrive at your best
only if we work hand in hand
sincerely in togetherness
braving the defilements
as to bring out the best in you

i am doing a part of your job
by info it will be your right knowledge
and your work is only to be aware
with right attitude and consistency
the rest is none of our concern
where wisdom will naturally arise
as to bring out the best in you

so what are we deliberating
but to seize each given moment
to develop this precious Way
where woes will slowly disappear
only to be replaced by peace
with freedom your highest goal
with the best finally arrives at your doorstep.

*right understanding (wisdom)

awareness your wise companion

I make a plea
That you don’t forget me
Or forsake me
Though I keep vanishing
From sight
Only to appear when you recall

I don’t mean
To frustrate you
To let you down
To make you feel a failure
For that’s not my job
But the clever weaving of defilements

In fact, I am always your grace
Which you know not now
For in any one moment
Having me around
Makes significant difference
But not to your knowing yet

So do have faith in me
Give me one more chance
To show what I can offer you
Only but with your persistence
The gate of Deathlessness will open
With Wisdom coming your way

now

what now is?
time?
place?
here?
or a mere definition
of what is only real
since past is gone and future unarrived?

or is it something else?
could it be you
that now comes to exist?
without you, what is now?

so
are you in the now
or now is you?

if you are in the now
then surely now is a time
which cannot be true
since time is only man-made

if you is now
what then is you?
only by realizing “you”
now will be fully understood
(or maybe now does not even exist!)

knowing with no you

mind not you
mind no you
mind don’t know you
mind only phenomenon
of nature unfolding

a process of activities
mind is all it is
arises from causes
end due to causes
continues too because of causes

if not aware clearly
if not investigate precisely
if not understood directly
mind becomes an imaginary you

but mind is not you
mind has no you
mind don’t know you
mind just processes

so what is “you”?
no-you, really
only mere knowing wrongly
or knowing rightly
without “you” knowing.
