resolute

My thinking is the same--my three Rs: Reading,
Writing, Running. And a vacancy of mind.

When you look in your mind you find it covered
with a lot of rubbishy thoughts.
You have to penetrate these and hear
what your mind is telling you to do.
Such work is original work. Agnes Martin




Seed syllable of manjusri/manjughosa 'dhih', the perfection of wisdom, in the Tibetan Uchen script

Sounds like a great trio of things to aim for, but I'm smiling at wanting "a vacancy of mind"

Luckily the trio is already part of how I live so emptying the mind-HA!- is the real challenge. It does make me smile too-maybe that's the cosmic joke.
