No language that isn’t the dharma

//No language that isn’t the dharma

No language that isn’t the dharma

Have been off in the North Sea, on a windswept island, in an unending swirl of the 10,000 things, studying with my teacher’s teacher and the extended Great Maha Sangha.
Thus, my silence here.

« There’s no language that isn’t the Dharma, » Bodhidharma said in his Wake-Up Sermon.

    And why is it this island is called Amyland?
    Is it for its merciless winds and sharp sands that cut the flesh from our bones ?
    Or is it for her soft dunes sleeping in the evening sun ?
    It can’t be for the thousands of loud tourists she attracts and who every summer ruin her peaceful beaches, can it?
