Stop searching for phrases and chasing after words.
Take the backward step and turn the light inward.
Your body-mind of itself will drop
off and your original face will appear.
If you want to attain just this,
immediately practice just this.
- Dogen (1200-1253)
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.
