Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn

by Wu Men Hui-k’ai
English version by Stephen Mitchell
Original Language Chinese

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.

    seeing, being, knowing… all parts of the one.

    a season comes and goes replaced by another.

    this endless motion would be hypnotizing if one lived in the now.

    every place has a rhythm. only stillness and silence can show it.

    these thoughts may appear to be riddles. quiet the mind… and know now is all there is.
