Some Pointers Toward Li Po

Do not look at what you see; look at what's there.

Intellect says you can never arrive at your destination because there's always half the distance left to go; only intuition gets you there.

All words divide. Speak clearly in a language your audience will understand. The larger that, the more your words should tend to silence.

Hsieh Ling-yun's poetry resembles the point where two great rivers join (Tao & Buddhism), the color of their currents still visible before they blend to Zen.

Love the final myth of Li Po: drunk in a boat, he jumps into the river and drowns trying to embrace the moon. Talk about your pointers!
