I know you had at some point that timeless restlessness

of trying to find a way to be comfortable in a Chair of Reality

and your mind just couldn’t quite find a way

of how to settle down into whatever is

 

But here’s what you missed

you are

already sitting

You the Consciousness

are already long at rest

winking at the essence of all your love

relaxed

with a lazy Buddha smile

 

No punctuation in zazen

just flow and non-flow

of Ordinary Perfection
