the great unlearning

by Shim Kwang,

zen, the great unlearning
all your answers questioned

sometimes I wonder, what is happening to me?
is it happening to others?
great frustration, great confusion, great doubt

then I stop - me? what am I?
who is asking these questions?
who wants to know?
who or what is it that is aware of this "I"?

a torrent of thoughts appears
return to the breath, one says
watch, witness, observe, says another

sun’s rays beam through an open window
a cat asleep on the sofa
birds chirping in the trees

Is this it? KATZ!!!
