Lunch is ramen:

Is it a Naruto moment or an InuYasha one?

Ah.

The Heart Sutra comes to mind. (I like it' It's very short, very profound on what matters.)

I don't meditate enough, either.

Form is emptiness and emptiness is form ;
emptiness does not differ from form,
form does not differ from emptiness,
whatever is emptiness, that is form,
the same is true of feelings, perceptions, impulses, and consciousness.

all dharmas are marked with emptiness;
they are not produced or stopped,
not defiled or immaculate,
not deficient or complete.

_____

And this sutra has a mantra:

gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, bodhi svaha!

which can be translated as: gone, gone, gone beyond, gone beyond beyond, hail the awakening!

i've read part of that, but not all.... nice.

basically, everything is fine as is and Dumbldore was right.

Counts on your perspective, though.

All may be emptiness, but if I drop a bowling ball on your foot, would it still hurt?

    You might try Nobunaga Concerto where a modern time traveler exchanges places with Nobunaga. Follows Nobuanaga historically
