Aha! My kind of Zen. Thanks, Paul!


Utterly fabulous. I love this one so much:
"the crow's caw was okay but one night with a lovely whore
opened a wisdom deeper than what that bird said"

I once had a lover who did that for me. It's funny because he was such an asshole in so many ways but for whatever reason, I felt like I was at one with the universe when we made love. I once wrote a poem about it that started with "I taste God in my lover's mouth". It's that kind of immanence that is so often missing in spirituality, especially Buddhism and the sons of Abraham religions. Too much emphasis on transcendence leaves us feeling empty or hollow or something.

Humans, I think, are intended to feel it all, embrace and taste it all, not just fly over it.

I will be buying this book.

Thank you for taking the time to write this. So good for my soul tonight.

So glad it spoke to you, Kymberlee!
