About the Author
Read an Excerpt
Follow sound able to-enter
See place encounter source
“Six Roots” gate all perceptions without error
Within all actions all sources become apparent
Water in salt flavor
Paint within binder blue
Low / high eye discerns is not separate thing
Seeing the Ox
Follow the sound and the way opens; see the place and come to the source.
At the root of each sense is a gate: perception there is not muddled.
Inside all actions the source becomes clear.
Like the salt in sea water,
like the binder in blue paint.
The eyes distinguish first and last
and see: “it” is not a separate thing.
A Glimpse of the Ox
If he would only listen to everyday sounds he would get it in a second.
As for the senses: it was the cicada that made the ear! The thing itself is
there no matter what we do. It is like the salt in water or the binder in
paint. Rightly opened, the eye sees no difference between the worthy
and the worthless.
