Reflections on living from Capacity

nothing inside us

Colin Oliver was a close friend of Douglas Harding. He has been writing poetry about our true Self since the 1960s. Over the last few years he has gone more deeply into writing haiku. I illustrated one of his recent haiku a few days ago and published it on YouTube. Also, this week, I've read two chapters from Douglas' Head Off Stress which about 60 of us are reading together on the current online course. One of the chapters reflects on detachment and engagement, and suggests that resting in the void that is unaffected by the world's suffering is only half the story. The other half is seeing that one is not separate from the world. Seeing that the world is here in the emptiness, one's heart opens. This haiku echoes this, for me.
