The Gateless Gate / 무문관(無門關)

Believe-making

It makes sense.
Everything in the universe is art
And I feel the universe in small things around me
They too become art
Futile, futile, futility becomes art
And I feel the emptiness in small things around me
Art too is futile
I believe my enlightenment makes art
And futile, trivial things bring enlightenment to me
Therefore my enlightenment is that art seems inevitably futile
Art is like believe-making of the hairy turtle and unicorn rabbit.
- Choi Jeong Hwa
