Beginningless and self-causing. Religion and nature.
All my past and harmful karma,
born from beginningless
and delusion [unclear seeing],
through body, speech, and mind,
I now fully avow.
— Repentance verse from Soto Zen liturgy
Now we learn what patient periods must round themselves for the evolution of life: from the ancients to the earliest, to the middle, and the recent. Time measured in rock strata: the expert says, 3200 years for the geological column to form—the whole thing, layers upon layers. It seems everything in nature is eager to offer her lesson. The philosophers find her ever wakeful, day and night, night and day, season after season, year after year, generation after generation. It publishes itself in creatures reaching from transformation on transformation—lava, to rock, to cracked rock, to moss and lichen, to flora and fauna, to higher and higher symmetries. It practices a graduality in heat change, a slightness in motion change, spanning longitudinal distance in such slow degree that I'm forced to face the stoic non-violent.

"I’ve been hearing symphonies
Before all I heard was silence
A rhapsody for you and me
And every melody is timeless
Life was stringing me along
Then you came and you cut me loose
Was solo singing on my own
Now I can’t find the key without you." 🌿

33/365 ❤ You Are the Art
Make yourself feel good about you. See? There's no need to overcomplicate things. Just like Cristen Rodgers said: " We are all artists, painting our lives upon the canvas of reality. Mix the colors your own way and apply emotion liberally. Don't be afraid to let your brushstrokes show, and above all else, make sure your art has soul."
