Mind can never be intelligent - only no-mind is intelligent.
Only no-mind is original and radical.
Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.

burdened by the projections of the future,

the dust that you have collected in the past,
the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,
and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.

We all have a social mask, right?

inhabited by futurists and science-fiction writers.

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
