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.

New Years Eve Haiku
Last day of the year
It’s December thirty-one
Now, the only time
And yet we are told in the Evening Gatha - "time passes swiftly"
We have 31 556 926 seconds of "Now" to be part of in this coming year!
