Nothing Happened


the Basica




My own arrogance itself
Wounds me.
And when I tear it open,
There is nothing there.

Who is wounded?
I am.
Who is "I"?

Where is the wound?
There is no there there.

There is no multiplicity.
There is no duality.
There is no oneness.
How can there be one
Of nothing?

Who is asking?
I am.
Who is "I"?

There is no there there.

How can there be one
of nothing?

And it has been there,
Right in front of me,
All along.

Who has it been in front of?
Where is in front?
There is no there there.

I have toppled myself.
I have kicked the legs out from under myself.
I have fallen on my own sword.
I am slain.
Who is "I"?

This changes everything.
Everything is the same.
Both are one. All is one.
There is nothing there.
How can there be one of nothing?

It doesn't feel like anything.
There is nothing there.
Nothing happened.
