A Cup Of Tea (1)
I received your letter.
How lovingly you insist on my writing something,
and here am I, drowned in a deep silence!
I speak, I work,
but I am steeped in emptiness within.
There, there is no movement.
Thus I seem to be living two lives at one time.
What a drama!
But perhaps all of life is a drama
and becoming aware of this opens the door
to a unique freedom.
That which is
inaction in action
stillness in motion
eternity in change
– that is truth
and that is existence.
Real life lies in this eternity –
everything else is just the stream of dreams.
In truth the world is just a dream
and the question is not whether to leave these dreams or not,
one just has to be aware of them.
With this awareness, everything changes.
The centre moves.
A shift takes place from body to soul.
And what is THERE?
It cannot be told.
It has never been told
and it never will be!
There is no other way but to know it for oneself.
Death is known only through dying
and truth is known only through diving deep within oneself.
May God drown you in this truth!
