573. this is the knowledge

“there is #zen and there is debt!” the guru said, “but neither of them are real. both are merely tricks of the light, reflections of thought in language. you have no #zen, and you owe nothing.”

but the tortoise replied, “i hunger for lettuce. that is something.”

the guru said, “no. for lettuce is something, and you are something, but hunger is nothing. you do not hunger and there is no #zen.”

never forget to forget: all #zen is a lie.
