To be Shown to the Monks at a Certain Temple

Not yet to the shore of non-doing,
it's silly to be sad you're not moored yet.. .
Eastmount's white clouds say
to keep on moving, even
it's evening, even if it's Fall.

~Chico Jan (730-799)

Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving
things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped
by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let
the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most
important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow
already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

~Steve Jobs

"Life is by nature, constant flow and interaction of numberless elements.
Nothing ever stays the same, even from one moment to the next. Everything is
on its way to becoming something else, and therefore, nothing can be held onto.
If you see this clearly, if you consider and examine this deeply and fully, then
letting go is the only thing left to do. How can you hold on? What is there to hold

So the art of spiritual surrender is really the art of not knowing. Then it doesn't
make any difference at all whether you are walking down the street or eating
lunch or responding to your email or making love or sitting alone on your couch.
This is the first and last time you will ever be doing this. If you truly understand
that, it changes everything."

Gardening in autumn

No painted beams adorn my house,
Green pines suffice.

All one's life, its thousand efforts,
Evaporate at once. Who looks well beyond,
Builds the raft, directs it smoothly
To the lotus blooms he craves?

Beneath the pines, tend to roots,
Not blossoms.

~Han Shan

This is walking barefoot
on the path

One glance, beginning end
and Heart

So vast is space
in a back yard
