All, and Nothing
All the thoughts in my head and the nothingness
All these rafts keeping me afloat on this ocean of mind.
Oh, how the burning sun, obscured by the sea of clouds above,
casts it's mighty reflection in the transparant liquid below.
If only one would surrender his body to the powerful waves,
sacrifice his ephemeral self to the storm,
Only then will be realized there never was a sun in the sky,
and the light of truth will shine from below.
And the mighty currents will render him helpless in their arms,
as they flow towards the light.
Eric in Taiwan, April 29'
