Day 18: Spectrum

Day 18
Pure light is all colors.
Therefore, it has no hue.
Only when singleness is scattered
Does color appear.
-Deng Ming-Dao


The author writes, "That is why those who follow Tao constantly speak of returning. They unify all areas of their lives and unify all distinctions into a whole. There cannot be diversity within unity. When our consciounes rejoins the true Tao, there is only brightnesss, and all color disppears."

I have seen a double rainbow one time in my life - April 2009. The colors united and eventually they disappeared. It is the way of things. Between the beginning and the end it was a spectacular sight. In Tibetan Buddhism it is believed that such a sight means that someone, like a Rinpoche, has reached enlightenment.
