Dig In


Working through the  227 Rules For Monks. Who knew the simple life could be so complex. This another of the 92 pācittiyas.

Dig In

there is nothing here

nor there

nothing beneath the surface

at least

nothing worth searching for

what you will find

is that time has been wasted

looking for nothing

let the surface

be sufficient

looking for more

will result in disappointment


when you find

that what is hidden from you

is hidden from everyone

hidden as the surface

not as something beneath

it has no depth of perception

there is no need to strive to understand

because understanding

changes nothing

the surface remains unchanged

no matter what you think

you find underneath it
