Beyond imagination

In order for the new
to be born
the old must be let go of
completely

While the old is held on to
the only new that can appear
is a reconfiguration
of what has been

The ten thousand things
can be endlessly recombined
into what the mind
marvels at as new

The ten thousand and first
comes from the willingness
to leave the land
of the ten thousand

Beyond imagination
beyond imagination

Is it just me, or is that second paragraph supposed to read that way? It seems to contradict what you said in the first - that we are to "let go" of the old in order for the new to come in, not - "until the old is held on to" :)

Thanks, dear reader, for pointing out my wrong usage of 'until'! I have corrected it now.

I trust that the message got through anyways! :)

Yes, the message was heard indeed! As are all your beautiful messages :)I enjoy reading your blog!

My interpretation -
"...the only new that can appear is a reconfiguration of what has been...endlessly recombined in the mind...until we are willing to go beyond"... the imaginings of the mind...
