The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Zen is very simple

 

Zen is very simple. Dishwashing time, just wash dishes; sitting time, just sit; driving time, just drive; talking time, just talk. That’s all. Not special. But that is very difficult. That is absolutes thinking. When you’re doing something, just do it. No opposites…
It’s easy to talk about “When you’re doing something, just do it,” but action is very difficult. Just don’t hold. Thinking is OK. Checking is OK. Only holding is a problem. Don’t hold. Feeling coming, going, OK. Don’t hold. If your mind is not holding anything, it is clear like space. Clear like space means that sometimes clouds come, sometimes rain or lightning or airplane comes, or even a missile blows up, BOOM! World explodes, but the air is never broken. This space is never broken.

— with Alfonso Aldunate Salazar.
