Why the Zen Poet Speaks

Sitting zazen [meditation], you really become intimate with the limitations of language, of narrative, of thought itself. With every thought there’s a “Yes, but….” With every idea comes another idea. This is the labyrinth of thought. Ultimately, you realize that “truth” is not to be found in words. I think it’s from this realization, this awareness, that the Zen poet speaks.

– Seido Ray Ronci, “No Words”

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
