Read this quote today in a Sufi book - it is actually from a zen guy but anyone who knows something about Sufis can see why it was mentioned in that context. In the style that JamesT often reminds us in:
You've traveled up ten thousand steps in search of the Dharma.
So many long days in the archives, copying, copying.
The gravity of the Tang and the profundity of the Sung
make heavy baggage.
Here! I've picked you a bunch of wildflowers.
Their meaning is the same
but they're much easier to carry.
