The World of Ram Tzu

Is RAM TZU a SAGE,artwork

Perhaps he is all of these. Perhaps he is Nothing at all.

One thing is for certain, his is one of the freshest voices we have heard on the "spiritual scene" in quite a while.

For Ram Tzu, only Nothing is truly sacred.

Ram Tzu writes

You mistake sweetness for Truth.

You are drawn to the gentle smile
The reassuring gaze.
The soft voice
And kind word.

If it makes you feel good enough
You assume the hand of God
Has touched your heart.

It is the cruelest trap of all
And you keep falling into it
Lured by the promise
Of goodness
Of progress
Of attainment.

You pass the Sage
So crude and ordinary
Without a glance
His common words
Mere animal grunts
In your ears.

Ram Tzu knows this:
The path to Salvation
Is in the dirt you step on.

No Way #97

You have Ram Tzu's love
And you've done nothing
To deserve it.

Now you want
Ram Tzu's approval.

You've run out of luck.

No Way #71

What could be more ludicrous
Or boring
Than a discussion about the truth? . . .

You read the
Spiritual guidebooks.
God on $25 a Day.

You are inspired.
You can't wait to see
All the sights
So eloquently described.

It all sounds

Much more exciting
Than what you have at home.

But the fear sets in
When it's time to leave.
You try to pack
Everything you own.
Now you can't move
For the weight of it.

Ram Tzu knows this...

If you finally go
You'll travel light.

No Way #93

You like the idea of
Being on a journey.
You like the idea
That you're going somewhere.
You think
If you're going somewhere
You might get somewhere.
You're seduced by
The prospect of progress.
It's a measure of your discontent.
Ram Tzu knows this...
You can't get here
From there.

No Way #65

Ram Tzu knows this...

For every harmony
There is a chaos

For every order
There is a disorder

Back and forth
Up and down
Yin and Yang

All attempts at stasis
Are doomed,
Crushed under
The relentless wheel
Of nature.

No Way #24

Did you try it?

Ram Tzu writes

icon

The pursuit of mastery
Over yourself
Is as worthwhile
As gaining control of
Your shadow.

You approach your life
As you would a chess game.
You want to win so you
Consider each move
Mentally playing out every permutation.

Ram Tzu knows this:
Life is not confined by 64 squares.
And God your opponent,
Keeps changing the rules.
