” There are countless paths to the mountain’s summit. Yet from it the same moon pours radiance over the landscape.”
“Entering the forest he moves not the grass; entering the water he does not make a ripple.”
“It is deep autumn. What kind of life is my neighbors I wonder…”
” One day a monk spoke bitterly to the Buddha about the unbearable sorrows of the world. The Buddha remained silent. Then he pointed at the earth between his feet, and said: ” On this earth I have attained awakening.”
Splendor of the World….no Why.
All quotes excerpted from Zen Seeing, Zen Drawing
” Wherever you are is home
And the earth is paradise
Wherever you set your feet is holy land…
You don’t live off it like a parasite.
You live in it, and it in you,
Or you don’t survive.
And that is the only worship of God there is.”
