Haven't read the book (so I might be way off track) but here goes.
To paraphrase the Heart Sutra: the formalities are no other than emptiness,
'Weeds' are what drive my practice, through which they are - at moments in time - no longer weeds
Can definitely relate with the Japanese doing away with personal pronouns part. This will be an interesting experiment.
