Homage to the Guru – our own true nature, and the embodiment of that….
Thoughts and feelings
the natural radiance of the ground.
If I relax and let them be
I find the openness of ‘me’.
If I grab hold, I’ll make of me
what’s called by Scots
‘a wee stookie!’*
* Stookie …a rigid dressing, usually made of gauze and plaster of Paris, used to immobilize an injured body part, as in a fracture or dislocation – a plaster cast (urban dictionary )
You could see the plaster of paris as the energy of attention which, when applied to the gauze of the constructs/concepts, seems to create a fixed shape or pattern which restricts the degree of free movement or play in the world.
