Ekphrastic Haiku 4

Laura Emerson, Beneath the Wave – The Culturium

letting spaciousness naturally settle and expand

any thought being mind made of mind like

waves which are ocean made of ocean…

the short liturgy of vajrakaya

singing my song from below:

may its echoes resound to other realms

undulating goodness

    1. Actually, it’s amazing how from below it is crystal clear how waves and ocean are inseparably one thing. But from the surface each wave seems unique, particular different. Both things are true on some level but when we only see the different particularities without maintaining awareness of their oneness with the field we create the world of dualistic confusion. It doesn’t exist as such, but it sure seems so. Your picture shows the indivisibility of ocean and waves in a truly fantastic – and extremely simple – way. Bravo!


      1. You are absolutely right. I particularly appreciate your words about “the world of dualistic confusion” that seems so real and is yet false and ultimately destructive. I didn’t even know what was happening at the time but the picture emerged from a profound state of oneness which paved the way to things I’d never dreamt possible before. Thank you so much for seeing; it means a lot.

      2. Well, just for you I uploaded the short meditation text. The particular line is changed because the word ‘ocean’ features a couple of lines later but it’s the same thought.

        If that doesn’t work, go to the Liturgy page at : https://baronbrasdor.art/learning-from-lyme-liturgy/ and you will see the Vajrakaya text link at the bottom.
        Maybe you’ll like using it, maybe you won’t; either way of course is fine. But if you DO try it I’d love to hear how it goes for you!
