I feel happy and excited that I wrote this Zen Thought together with our participants during the Zen retreat of last weekend. They left sparkling words for me to weave into a brocade......
It is a way of discovering and learning,
The time is flowing.
We ask “where am i”,
With a deeper sense of breathing.
It is a new beginning,
The “patience” is listed in our memo.
To try a new way of walking,
Not overly formal, just normal.
With candles’ light,
In a quiet night.
Is that impossible with no electronics?
There’s no “must” thing in the world.
The world washes over me while I breathe,
This will help me,
It is what it is.
With an empty mind,
I just don’t want to get rid of suffering.
Because it is full of,
Here and now,
The beautiful sunshine gives us profound teaching.
Day by day,
Which day Is not a good day?
Neither that nor this,
Just as it is.
Pretty mountain is pretty mountain,
Tired knees is tired knees.
