Ram Tzu – Every time

Every time
by Ram Tzu (Wayne Liquorman)

Ram Tzu knows this…

Every time
You find an answer,
The question
No longer seems important.

— from No Way: For the Spiritually “Advanced”, by Wayne Liquorman

This poetic statement works both ways…

When you find a true answer, it consumes the question until only the answer remains.

But also…

We should be careful of pursuing only answers. Too often that numbs us to the living Mystery which lives more in the openness of questions than in the comfort of pat answers.

So here’s to answers that consume the question, and questions too big for answers!

Wayne Liquorman is a teacher in the Advaita nondualist tradition of Ramesh S. Balsekar, Nisargadatta Maharaj, and Ramana Maharshi.

Ram Tzu is his poetic alter-ego (alter non-ego?). Liquorman says he published his poetry under the pen name Ram Tzu because he “didn’t want a bunch of miserable seekers cluttering up his living room.”

His poetry often reveals an iconoclastic sense of humor and sarcasm similar to Han Shan and some of the Zen rascals.

“For Ram Tzu, only Nothing is truly sacred.”
