Many of us try to, but in our eagerness transform this very simple thing into something else, a spiritual search for something outside ourselves, some idea called enlightenment. I can't say I'm innocent...

    A problem without a problem? Well, it's only a problem if I label it a problem. The situation may be very real, but how we think (judge) the situation leads to the problem. Sort of like this guy:


    A deadly storm band that is simultaneously eye? Well, sometimes the best* place to be is in the problem so deep that there is just being there, and thus there is no problem. When I'm really deathly ill, then that's all I am, that's all I can be. But all around me the storm that is people that care about me swirl and storm and cry about. From my experience, it is much easier* to be in that sick bed than to the one of the people tending to the person in that bed.

    (* judgments that create problems out of situations, really slippery stuff, hair's breadth stuff)

    I like that Ummon simply answers Mount Sumeru. Like many of these koans the answer just cuts to the heart of things. Encouraging us to let go of our ideas.

    The commentary makes reference to Hakuin taking on the care of a baby in difficult circumstances. Jundo asked what storm are we experiencing in our lives just now. For me im struggling with a difficult colleague at work and some general lack of moral at work. I wish i could always feel like Hakuin and just say is that so. But i see this koan pointing to the fact that it is our ideas of how things should be that stop us from living from mt sumeru.

    Thane... in this difficult struggle in finding morality in the work place, is that an idea about what morality should look like?

    Hi Galen. It certainly is an idea about what morality should look like. Something for me to sit with.
