Wednesday Wisdom Words

October 10, 2022


Wisdom is Compassion, and
Compassion is Wisdom.
But it takes practice.

Practice is Enlightenment, and
Enlightenment is Practice.
But it takes time.

Time is Being, and
Being is Time.
To realize this is good medicine.

Medicine is Disease, and
Disease is Medicine.
All forms are Medicine.

Form is Emptiness, and
Emptiness is Form.
This OneGoneness is nirvana.

Nirvana is Samsara, and
Samsara is Nirvana.
Back to practice.

Practicing Being takes us to Non-Being.
There’s nothing to find, and
That’s what we’re here to find.

There’s not an original thought there, but
It is your Original Nature, and mine.
