The two legendary swordsmen of ancient Japan finally met. Each other’s disciples eager to see who was best. One step at a time, they slowly walked towards each other, hands hovering over their blades. Then, stood only a few feet apart…they smiled, and retired to a small anti-room to drink sake together and play I-Go (Japanese checkers) They knew. When realized beings meet, there is only the blue sky and warmth of the summer sun.


It is so simple. So simple and so intimate that it is overlooked time and time again. The conditioned mind desires experience. Thought itself, mental images, keep you looking "out there" for answers and craving more and more experience. We form an image of what we think we are looking for based on what apparent others say and rejoice when we find something resembling it.

Beware of the ego creeping back in and subtly claiming a victory. In the immortal words of the Tao Te Ching, "He who says he knows, does not know". Relinquish all limited concepts of the mind and there you are...perfectly poised.
