"An old Chinese Zen Master once said, "From birth to death it's just like this!" ...We tend to imagine another place or time when it will become "more" - but this, right here, NOW, this *is* it. This is what counts. This moment.
The great Zen master of the 13th century, Dogen Zenji, taught that the goal of Zen practice is to realize our Buddha Nature. But then he pointed out that “mountains, rivers and the grasses” were themselves the Buddha Nature.❤️☀️
