Philip Whalen, A picture of a mind moving Barry Magid July 16th 2016

Whalen's style of writing was simply watching and recording the movement of his mind. He did because he found his mind really really interesting. For Whalen, both poetry and meditation were ways of paying attention to this interesting mind. And if you leave it alone and watch it, it has a much bigger range than our logical everyday thinking. This represents a time when people studied zen out of fascination with the possibilities of the mind.
