Home » Haikus » Non-Dual Form & Emptiness

If you’re confused about the outside,
you’re attached to forms.
If you’re confused about the inside,
you’re attached to emptiness.

To be free of form amid forms
and to be free of emptiness amid emptiness,
this is when you aren’t confused
about the [dualities of] inside or the outside.

~ Sixth Patriarch of Chan (Master Huineng), Platform Sutra
