The holy ghost is the whole lot.... holy = whole.
The father is seeing.... the son is the appearance... the father and son are one.....not two.
Can the seer be separate from the seen?

Forget religion for a minute and examine what is actual.
Look now at what is appearing....
Seeing is happening and within that seeing all appears.

Saint Francis of Assisi said...... 'We are looking for what is looking'.

The holy ghost means no thing really exists........
Emptiness is forming.

There is no seer (thing) and there is no seen (thing)..... there is just happening.

We have to be mindful of it. We have to always be vigilant in the awareness of our own thinking and feeling. Whenever we think or feel, "this should not be" we have to try to breath deeply and just accept our new consequences without judgment. So many things in our lives are outside of our control. When we are constantly judging the events of our lives we lose sight of or fail to see that which will give us joy and happiness.

What brings to my mind from your words here is this story:

(From Zen Flesh, Zen Bones)

Muddy Road

Tanzan and Ekido were once traveling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was falling.

Coming around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection.

"Come on, girl," said Tanzan at once. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.

Ekido did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he no longer could restrain himself. "We monks don't go near females," he told Tanzan, "especially not young and lovely ones. It is dangerous. Why did you do that?"

"I left the girl there," said Tanzan. "Are you still carrying her?"


Instead of judging others perhaps we need to look deep within our souls to see what heavy burdens (trials and tribulation) we choose to continue to carry and how to learn to either carry them with ease and acceptance or release them altogether.
