Poem About Nothing

'This is a poem
about nothing
about something
this is a poem
about someone standing
someone lying down
somewhere with doors
closed, doors
open: people are eating
breakfast perhaps: their faces
are peaceful
with chewing
with tasting
sharp smells rise up
from the street, rise up
from beds, from carseats
men and women are walking
they are all going somewhere
else: their arms
swing, their legs
from their hips their clothes
hide, their clothes
there are always secrets
among us someone is lying down
somewhere or else
someone is standing up
the doors there are open
the doors there are closed'

One late autumn night,
the disciple woke up crying.
So the master asked the disciple...
"Did you have a nightmare?"
"Did you have a sad dream?"
"No!", said the disciple.
"I had a sweet dream."
Then why are you crying so sadly?
The Disciple answered quietly
While wiping his tears...
"Because the dream
I had can't come true!"

What is your deepest fear?

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate; Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure! It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us!

Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others!"

"The first time you share tea, you are a stranger.
The second time, you are a friend.
The third time, you become family"

Being unreasonable and unambiguous

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"

"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat

"I don't much care where..." said Alice

"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat
