One day Yao-shan Wei-yen (750-834), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an master, was asked by the host of the monastery to give his sermon to the assembly who for a long while was expecting his teaching. Yao-shan said: "Strike the bell."

The wound is to deny, defy, and crucify our fear.. though the fear turns into hatred.
But fear won't ever be mentioned, looking into the face it goes way beyond fear into terror, where even beliefs dissolve into nothing and what's left travels back into the night, to attack fear, by attaching to what is "solid" as a noble cause.
it's not said... not said, never even looked at
So, before the long dark night, I'll shave, before the kiss of the wounded begins.
