Verses for contemplation on 10-23-06

The myriad dharmas return to one. To what does the One return?

-variation on a popular Zen koan

When you have seen God
You meditate on Him,
Saying to yourself, "I am He."

But when you are without thought
And you understand there is only one,
Without a second,
On whom can you meditate?

-Ashtavakra Gita 18:16

Let thy soul be de-spirited of
all spirit; let it be spiritless.
Love God as he is: a not-God, a
not-spirit, a not-Person, a not-image,
as sheer, pure, limpid unity, alien
from all duality.

-Meister Eckhart, Sermon XCIX
