I heard that you can

unfold all the ribbons

binding your true nature, one

by one, unravelling them, sometimes

just loosening them a bit, tugging

on their middles and edges,

at times with great force

(but usually with a middling kind of pressure)

and that when those ribbons

are lying of the floor of

non-origination

you can see your true face

and it shines.

It shines.

You can do

this with the fingers of awareness

and the scissors of wisdom,

I heard.

That true face:

maybe it overwhelms the world

like the sun and the moon

coming together

at last.
