The zen of choosing

At the receiving end of wisdom 
I marvel at pure presence 
or just there

Life pulses in and all around me
as a gift 
as loving 
as ready
as awareness

No difficulties here

It’s the choices 

How to name the experience 

It could be also
impenetrable mystery 
unknown assignment 
inevitable state

How to form the energy and matter into a living biography

What to eat 
who to meet
how to eat
how to meet

Very simple actually
eating and meeting
being eaten, being met 

The thousand forms 
the Buddha says 
are empty

Returning to each empty moment 
is so fulfilling
