will be when All Beings
experience each other
as limbs on the
One body of Life.”

Zen is both practical and a spiritual path

Image may contain: tree, sky, outdoor and nature

” Zen is both practical and a spiritual path. Practical because it is firmly grounded in the here and now, and spiritual because it invites us to see the essence behind the world of appearances. It is also practical because it helps us to live life spontaneously, even joyously, and spiritual because it enables us to see the sacredness of the very fact of existence. “

If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody

“If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody. If your mind is agitated you will find agitation everywhere. So first find peace within and you will see this inner peace reflected everywhere else. You are this peace. You are happiness, find out. Where else will you find peace if not within you?”
