Someday my papers will be finished/ dirty hippie Zen.
If you have attained something, this is the surest proof that you have gone astray. Therefore, not to have is to have, silence is thunder, ignorance is enlightenment.
—D. T. Suzuki
America has Zen students in the past, has them in the preesnt, and will have many of them in the future. They mingle easily with so-called worldlings. They play with children; respect kings and beggars; and handle gold and silver as pebbles and stones
Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.
I threw my cup away when I saw a child drinking from his hands at the trough.
