    gassho, Shokai, still learning the way and knowing nothing
    仁道 生開 - Jindo Shokai "Open to life in a benevolent way"
    Just another itinerant monk; go somewhere else to listen to someone who really knows.

    'this' on an empty page is powerful!

    Beautiful. Of course, "this" does not foreclose"that."

    Very interesting. I always related my clarinet practice to running a marathon instead of a sprint. The means is to persevere and have longer term 'goals' with any practice to become successful. I guess this could be applied in a way to Shikantaza so people do not burn out. There was a TED Talk about this, the speaker called it the grit factor.

    Gassho,
