More than three months ago, the “me” disappeared.
The most imperative thing to do at that time seemed to be to urgently broadcast this development.
Thus the blog.
One day the imperative evaporated.
The motivation to write, like the imaginary “me” was nowhere to be found.
The world I live in resembles a wacky 3D computer display where anything can and does ex itself out any time. Actually, it always had existed that way, it just did not appear so blatantly evanescent, so stark.
If there is no one here (there isn’t) and there never was (there wasn’t) what is actually going on ? Writer or reader, awake or pre-awake, what is happening ? Sounds like a question from Huang Po*, but this is after the Gateless Gate.
Apparently, awakening continues to develop and unfold.
Vaguely, I seemed to recall the desire to relate the waking up events as seen from here,
” The Roar of Silence” (located at the top right corner of the home page)
to show how plain and simple the process was.
So, that’s done.
Beyond that, what?
Something new arose.
It always does.
A quiet sense , more gentle, more inviting, more of a wish to share a marvelous find with a friend.
This new sense may not generate many posts, given how many have already appeared here.
There is neither a plan to continue nor otherwise.
There is no planning.
Just a wish to share what’s been found.
And perhaps some roadsigns.
There is no one here: not you, not me.
There is no interaction between us.
And out of that vacuity arises joy.
Thanks for stopping by.
