Content or else left discontented.
Full of content or else empty; open to
A blossoming in contentedness.
Void and avoid after all cousins;
It’s all about words and worlds
give or take a letter or two.
“You should stop words and letters,”
Says Dogen, “and learn to withdraw
and reflect on yourself.
“When you do so
your body and mind will naturally fall away,
and your original Buddha nature will appear.”

Well yes, the usual suspects.
But also in the bathroom mirror.

Doesn’t mean you should
Nor that you shouldn’t either
Maybe best take a pause though
