This has been on my mind since I saw it yesterday.
At first it was tension in me, my absolute vs my relative; from an individual perspective, I am the koan: "infinite naked love" does stand in me constantly and many dawns have ripped my "dreaming heart' into cold reality. It is what I want. Not a romatic any longer. Intimate, self contained.
It will have to remain that way.
It has to now since I copied and pasted to various friends not all of which are romantics.
One answered "sexyyyy".
I said whoaaa. My teacher might not "get" this.
:hide:


Who is the "you" in the koan? "You stand inside me naked infinite love."


Droping in darkness, like a pearl through mud.

IT SPEAKS IN SILENCE
