No valid plans for the future can be made
by those who have no capacity for living now.
The only way to make sense out of change
is to plunge into it,
move with it,
and join the dance.
Trying to define yourself
is like trying to bite your own teeth.

The meaning and purpose of dancing is the dance.
Like music also, it is fulfilled in each moment of its course.
You do not play a sonata in order to reach the final chord,
and if the meaning of things were simply in ends,
composers would write nothing but finales.

If you ask me to show you God,
I will point to the sun, or a tree, or a worm.

But if you say,
“You mean, then, that God is the sun, the tree,
the worm, and all other things?” —
I shall have to say that you have missed the point entirely.

I have realized that the past and future are real illusions,
that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.

Our Zen Fountain — July 11, 2008   5 comments

The Water Flows

It’s hard for me to believe that it was six weeks ago
when I ordered the materials and began the preliminary
preparation for a fountain in our backyard.
There are many reasons why so long,
not the least of which was the delayed delivery of
the fountain pedestal, which finally can in yesterday.  

By working with nature, you can look into your own nature.

“The secret of life is enjoying
the passage of time
Any fool can do it”

“Here, then, is the genesis of two of the most important historical premises of Western science.
The first is that there is a law of nature, an order of things and events awaiting our discovery,
and that this order can be formulated in thought, that is, in words or in some type of notation.
The second is that the law of nature is universal . . .”
