Distinguishing Mind and Awareness by Will Brown, Oct 2016

Distinguishing mind and awareness

Mind makes lists

       applies labels

           judges appearances 

                 writes poems.

                 Awareness dances 

           through a fourth moment 

       where appearance emptiness becomes 

bliss / mahasukha

But this is not a story of our clan

No luminosity knowing             abides

No trickster with 

        tail on fire returns 

                        from there…

But when 

           the guru’s song and the 

      roosters shout, 

harmonizes with 

        the fabric at your knee, 

in time 

        to the second shadow dance of the ikebana

Our only          awareness 

is the embracing


Of the 3 kayas




in the Vision of the Great Eastern Sun,
