Monk In The World

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

Just This


Here is where I have been hooked this week in our 100 day practice study.



 

No matter what you say about it
flowers fall when lamented
and weeds flourish when disliked...from Dogen's Genjokoan

Seems descriminating can cause suffering, confusion, delusion, and duality.

So what did that monk see when he bowed?

 Capping verse

He didn't see anything,
He breathed in a non-descriminating breath


Bows,
Alan
