There, what form or shape is there to describe? What second,
what 'other', is there to see?

In the beginning, there is no Aum, or Veda. Who can trace His birth?

There, no sky exists, no moon or sun; no father's seed, no air, fire,
water or earth.

Who can name Him, or know His will?

Who can say from whence He comes?

I tried to leave a Wu comment, but your system won't allow it. So, here's something in place of my nothing.


You're right about TypePad's insistence on something rather than nothing, Rambling Taoist. The preceding was the best I could do myself.

And for sure it's the wisest thing I'll write or say all day.

love the wu. to paraphrase Umberto Eco (in Foucault's Pendulum): the true initiate cannot be coerced in to giving up the secret, no enemy can torture it from him, no jealous rival can coax it from him, because the true initiate knows that there is no secret

and modern neuroscience seems to say that self is an illusion

love the wu--I am nobody

Just a silly doubt.
Does Ric Flair practice Woo...????
