    true color, mokuren

    What is your true colors? How can you show your true color?


    As the needle goes
    through the field of mokuran
    birds songs
    traffic sounds
    even the distant train
    even
    your sweet face clouded with suffering

    all of them
    all are sewn
    into mokuran

    true color

    Taigu,
    Thank you for this wonderful talk. There is something beyond words communicated by the colour of the robe you sew. It is the heart of the matter. I hope the road is not too bumpy for you right now.

    Beautiful Taigu, thank you. It is great to see you as well and the other thing that is beautiful ... even though you are going down that ruff road, I still see such a joy and beauty in your face.

    Be well!

    Myozan, I think you have nailed it, mokuren is beyond words and is the heart of the matter.

    Taigu,
    The self living out the self .... Spacious, with room to experience all that life has to offer. True color is the spaciousness we discover when we practice.

    Thank you for this teaching.

    Please remember I am only a priest in training. I could be wrong in everything I say. Slap me if needed.

    Manifesting. Unfolding. Just being. Just sitting. Neither adding nor subtracting. It sounds so simple, but, as you point out, we make it complex. Thank you and please accept my wishes for peace.

    Gassho,
