Heart Sutra Wisdom

If you seek a home,
Remember,
She has none.

If you seek comfort,
Remember,
She opens to everything.

If you seek security,
Remember,
She cannot be controlled.

If you seek transcendence,
Remember,
She accepts things just as they are.

– Ken McLeod, from An Arrow to the Heart: A Commentary on the Heart Sutra

About Kestrel Slocombe

I like writing, meditation, art, reading, riding horses, playing guitar, watching trees in the wind, ferns, the smell of woodsmoke, Mozart and Bach, long walks in the wilderness, and the sound of the cello.
