Home is where

In pleasant as in unpleasant times

Everything is alright.

Home is where my heart is,

A glass jar,

In the morgue.

Arguably not really a poet, unless the unpoetical train of thought was intentional.

Maybe the whole poet persona here is fictional.

You did translate my last poem's core, though, in the first line. That is one of my favorite sayings.

... Which just reminds me of a related one, probably semi-original, and something I say occasionally. Core theme being family, closely related to the theme of home:

 

Blood is thicker than water,

They say,

But love is thicker than blood.

 

Although I only base this on the original thought, which we could criticize, because it might be based on evolutionary-materialist principles, and in that case, water is actually the more spiritual way than blood, and then love would be 'thinner', i.e. ethereal, superior even to water.

Then we could also examine it from an arguably Daoist standpoint and suggest that water is roughly a healthy balance between blood and love. But maybe only if we assume the worldly version of love, not the spiritual/divine (unconditional) one.

Put your sacred fire
The birth and death of phenomena at every moment
See life and death at one thought
Be aware of everything
Porch
The secret door will be opened in front of you.
Alchemy All Cultivation
All the meanings
All in the hallway
God is Fire
Pure awareness is pure land
The product is gas or water
Three families meet each other and have babies
Water and fire are tempered repeatedly, seven returns and nine returns
Create pure consciousness
Pure Land
Once the pure land is created
Water fire earth
Start knotting babies
Start to enter
Jindan Reality Cohesion Program

The above is written in Chinese, google translated into English, please forgive me for any errors

 

放你的神火
在每一刻現象的生滅
一念即見生死
覺察一切的起心動念
玄關
The secret door will be opened in front of you.
丹道一切修煉
一切奧義
都在玄關一竅
神即火
純粹的覺察即淨土
產物即氣即水
水火土,三家相見結嬰兒
水火反覆淬煉,七返九還
造就純然的覺
淨土
淨土一旦產生
水火土
開始結嬰兒
開始進入
金丹真人凝聚程式

What hope is there for us?

Only one thing:

the fact that it is very difficult to imitate Love.

They try -- every day --  

but their faces are all contorted from the contrived effort

and their eyes radiate death --

 

haven't you noticed?..

     

Hatred, by contrast, comes easy to them

and always looks genuine

because it is who they genuinely are.

Effortlessly.

 

Our only hope is

a sudden awakening of the hypnotized

to the fact they've been hypnotized

by the eyes of Death

imitating Love.  

By the tongue of Hate

speaking of Love.

By the message of Despair 

faking Hope.  

 

Our only hope is...

"MEDITATION"

Outside, minds are raining, storming, burning, flooding.

Inside it is calm, warm and cozy.

Boon and bane.

 

Can you take the best of both worlds?

That requires rejecting the worst of both worlds.

Which is twice the effort, if not much more.
