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.

Now here is that tree unwrapped. See, if we stay all wrapped up, we will never be able to reach out and express the beauty of our practice. It's just one practice, JUST THIS!
