The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

To study the self is to forget the self


“To study the Buddha’s way is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be actualized by myriad things. When actualized by myriad things, your body and mind as well as the body and minds of others drop away. No trace of realization remains, and this no-trace continues endlessly.”

~Zen Master Dogen
