When the mind is at peace

When the mind is at peace,
the world too is at peace.
Nothing real, nothing absent.
Not holding on to reality,
not getting stuck in the void,
you are neither holy nor wise, just
an ordinary fellow who has completed his work.

--P'ang Yün (740? - 808)
A famous lay practitioner of Ch'an during the T'ang dynasty (618-907), also known as ‘Layman P'ang’. He studied with many of the eminent Ch'an masters of his day and attained several profound enlightenment experiences (satori). He is known as the source of the saying, ‘My supernatural powers? I carry water and chop firewood’.

When the mind is in deep shit

When the mind is in deep shit
My world too is in deep shit
Nothing real, nothing worth.
Not holding on to some shitty zaatar!
not getting stuck in vicious circle,
you are neither lucky nor chosen, just
an malchanceux fellow who has been fooled by la "potion de la vie".

--Krys (1982 - 2ariban)
A mad human being, also known as ‘pain in the ass’. She studied with many of the eminent jerk zaatars of her era and attained several nonsense useless wasting time communications.
She is known also as the source of nagging and the saying, ‘My supernatural powers? Mojito and Cartier ciggies"


*this in any case represents the normal krys..this is a transitory state of mind and body saturated with coffee, diet pepsi, M&M's, nicotine and some human being jerkness....
Sorry for the inconvenience
