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.

Read All About It!


I've been reading some of the post about the Brit Hume vs Tiger Woods "thing". Got me to thinking about the media again. What would the world be like if we only knew what was happening within hollering distance?
I get so tired of the "us" vs "them" genre!!

The Blue Cliff Record - case 59

A monk asked Chao-chou, “ ‘The Ultimate Path has no difficulties—just avoid picking and choosing. As soon as there are words and speech, this is picking and choosing.’ So how do you help people, Teacher?”

Chao-chou said, “Why don’t you quote this saying in full?” The monk said, “I only remember up to here.”


Chao-chou said, “It’s like this: ‘The Ultimate Path has no difficulties—just avoid picking and choosing.’ ”
Bows,

Alan
