Happy Bloomsday!

Happy Bloomsday!

Happy Bloomsday, one and all!
Like Leopold Bloom 105 years ago today, you’re the hero of this day.
Look around! It’s all worth celebrating, morning to night.
As Molly said from beginning to end: Yes.
And with Stephen, remember simply: Cease to strive.
With a nod of eternal gratitude to that wily penman, Mr. James Joyce.

    Things as they are make a gateless gate.

    I read in “Beyond Awakening” from Jeff Foster:
    “There is no liberation, there is only this.
    And the included paradox is that this ìs the liberation we are looking for.”
    (My amateur translation back to English)

    Or Vimalakirti:
    “The nature of all things is liberation”

    Just live?

    If that is an expression of resignation I yawn.
    But if the “liberation-paradox” is included I bow.
