Between Oscillation: Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen.

It is the uncertainty between a particle and a wave that seems to fit perfectly with the Hon Sha ze Sho Nen. The distance healing symbol in Reiki means no past, no present, no future; no time, no space.

But how can that be when we use time and space, not only to intend for something to happen, but to see our intention to fruition?

At one end of the pendulum we have no action. At the other end we have action; one moment still but still moving.

It’s right there, in that sweet spot, in the uncertainty of whether it will be particle or wave, action or no action that Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen occurs.


But instead of time and space collapsing as you think it might if one might be able to exist in between one or the other, time stretches, not only forward and back, but on all sides, in all dimensions.

I think it’s like holding a butterfly in your open hand.

Maybe it is the Buddha’s middle path.

Shall we take it?

  1. I am all for the middle path! So, I believe, is Richard Rohr. He says, regarding his organization Center for Action and Contemplation, that one without the other doesn’t get us what or where we need to be. But then, I’m not an armchair physicist! What do I know?!
