Realization needs to be actualized. And having realized the fact that there’s no separation, an imperative arises to reach out to take care of things. That’s compassion. We take care of things because everything is this very body and mind itself. ~John Daido Loori
where do we end and the day begins? where is the stone that holds us up? where is the existential touchstone?
The birds have vanished from the sky
Now the last cloud drains away.
We sit together, the mountain and me
until only the mountain remains.
O sweet wind,
passing over love’s grass,
blow in my direction,
for the fragrance of love is my wish.
In the Face of my master, all beauty is revealed.
that is my wish.
