The yin and yang of light and darkness? Demons angels/Devas and Asuras?
There are many of such in his artwork like the geese and fish...
The zen koan or riddle: What was your fathers origonal face before you were born...
If you dont know your fathers origional face then look at the acts or works that the one you have or dont as the influence does it lead to freedom the
"light" or just more "suffering" the dark?
Well the yin and yang the up and down stair case the spiral of infinity one holding a light as a hermit conitually rising and decending chaining with
one arm and freeing with the next, as it is zen or the "way" in motion. Kama is a reaping blade a sickle that separates the wheat from the chaff in
dualism heavens and hells of becoming... this staircase of life has 3 ropes one of the snake(hate) one of the cock/chicken(greed) and the
pig(ignorance/delusion) these 3 are chained together the light and dark stretches in life in infinity due to those 3 doors or ropes and one finds
themselves at the bottom of the hourglass as the first speck to dig themselves out of from all that they have buried others with instead of emptiness
as the child is the clear glass itself as the ignorant sands fill up they appear empathetic to the one sitting at the bottom lost in death from the
two extremes a father and a mother the animals that do not tell them anything but only show cause and effect the same way a hot pan will bite a hand
of one eager to be fed, the same as one eager to feed bites the hand also.
Pain suffering and old age and death, are an illusion as the purity is the childs mind blank unlike the slate above their head in their last life that
becomes history as they are then just becoming, the i am, growth... I am now a boy or girl and i am now liking this or that I am becoming my own
ego... and yet now there is all of this control and limitation by the very concepts I have found myself in so now whom is the self? Whom is causing
the pain the hate and the ignorance... it was there when they got there and it was there before those feeding them got there in contact the sponge
absorbs and it sits saurated molding and posionious from all that was left the last time.
Those thirsty desiring more have already emptied one cup and expect or assume someone else will fill it or clean it and the zen master throws the
glass as neither slave to such attachment the potter then forms on the wheel another glass in concept and name and form when two hands come together
for an infinite cup washed in the stream then drunk from after washing ones own face. This is the cleaning of the 3 bowls, of course dream is to clean
the bowl of ignorance from waking on waking the bowl is cleaned from the ignorance of the previous the third bowl is that requiring food to continue
teaching the road in and out of all of that ignorance.
The chains are 12 the demon the 13th or doubt the 12 chains of causation the demon is death and the borth is in one of the 6th realms these 6 realms
are in consciousness all life all concepts all of the bondage human, animal, hell, heaven, gods/godesses/ their children blending into the angels and
demons when it is all life caught in the ignorance of bondage and back into the spiral as those chains one binds themselves too have yet to be
Once those are broken clear seeing, clear hearing, clear tasting, yet all is contact the easiest chain to break to get out of the spiral the ropes
On death the infinite nature of being or life shows ones attachment do not attach to the lights on realisation and one can flow freely through all
name and form unattached unbound of course the cycle does not end as all is contained in a single biosphere or world the same as an entire dead body
can become a whole world to feed life and forms as maggots to feed frogs bats birds etc etc the entire food chain of life when attached to dust.
The ignorance is just echoes... bouncing of an empty canyon wall.
