Andre Gide, Howard Nemerov, Zen Master Dahui, the way, no mind, and wonder

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas

 

                                                  

 

“The wise man is he who constantly wonders afresh.”

Andre Gide

 

 

Thus, “When you have no mind,” asserted Master Dahui, “Zen is easy to find.”

And so, Howard Nemerov concludes this section for us with one of his brilliant poetic metaphors, aptly titled The Way: “According to our tradition, when a man dies there comes to him the Angel, who says: ‘Now I will tell you the secret of life and the meaning of the universe.’ One man to whom this happened said: ‘Take off, grey Angel. Where were you when I needed you?’ Among all the hosts of the dead he is the only one who does not know the secret of life and the meaning of the universe; whence he is held in superstitious veneration by the rest.”
