Over the holidays I had a wonderful conversation with my Son and Daughter-in-law about the spiritual life (which is life).
Bows to my teacher.
And bows to my son and daughter-in-law for reminding me about this beautiful practice and way.
THE KOAN OF JUST SITTING
Eihei Dogen said, “Zazen is not a meditation technique. It is simply the Dharma gate of joyful ease; it is practicing the realization of the boundless Dharma way. Here, the open mystery manifests, and there are no more traps and snares for you to get caught in.”
