mushin || day 129: uncertainty 不定

whenever i notice
i am wearing my expert hat
i remind myself i am confused
it is only a dunce cap
on my head

This series of writing explorations that I call mushin are an attempt to grasp the concept of mushin no shin (mind without mind, 無心の心, often shortened to mushin, or “no-mind”). I am using prompts from 365 Tao, largely because they are Zen and Tao themes for meditation (which suits this exploration), not as an endorsement for the book from which they are derived. The daily prompts can be found in this table. Anyone wishing to participate is welcome to do so, either post your own response to the prompt below or post a link to your response in the comments.

    1. Glad to hear you like it. Val’s contribution so far has been very good as well.

      Sorry I didn’t make any more progress, but Cherie doesn’t seem to mind that I’m slow. Life got in the way 🙂
