the enlightened state of spontaneity

one feels that all philosophies, zen, & yoga are ways of approaching wisdom & "enlightenment" -- they are ways of approaching an enlightened state in which one's behavior is always or almost always "spontaneously" right.

Prayer: Psalm 121 - Dan Berrigan



I lift my eyes to you
my help, my hope


the heavens (who could imagine)
the earth (only our Lord)
the infinite starry spaces
the world's teeming breath


All this. I lift my eyes
- upstart, delighted -
and I praise

Jesus and Buddha as Brothers
