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.

Caroline and the experience of intimacy
I cannot add any conceptualization to this "having a grandchild". Truly, when I think of Caroline it is all feelings, as was demonstrated in the dream I had about her. I could not see her or hear her but she was all around my neck. A profound intimate experience which I cannot put into words. I felt the love going out to her and the love coming in to me. Pure and clean. When I woke up, I knew it was her.
