A Tibetan Buddhism Dzogchen perspective:

"Since everything is but an apparition, complete in being what it is,
having nothing to do with good or bad, acceptance or rejection, one may
well burst out into laughter."

Daily, nothing particular,
Only nodding to myself,
Nothing to choose, nothing to discard.
No coming, no going,
No person in purple,
Blue mountains without a speck of dust.
I exercise occult and subtle power,
Chopping wood, carrying water.

Some attribute it to Baso, the Japanese haiku poet - some attribute it
to Mazu,
the old Chinese chan master and teacher - and some attribute it to P'ang
Chu, a
student of Mazu's.

I guess some think this is just a "zen platitude" and not in the same
class as Rumi's poetry.
