    True Eye, True I

    Gesshu Soko writes:

    Under the trees,
    welcoming spring.
    Things take care of themselves.

    A monk looks weird
    to the common folk.

    The Teaching of this New Year
    is not outside the mind.

    Filling the eye,
    blue, blue mountains
    in all directions.


    The eye is the physical eye it is also the eye (gen) of Shobogenzo , Eye-treasury of the True Law, words uttered by Buddha when Kashyapa smiles as he sees the flower being turned.

    Indeed things take care of themselves, the non-doing is the path that brings others forth, a path of service and allowing. Spring cannot be created and the countless things that make Spring are out of our control.

    Blue mountains, all around. As you would see them living in China or Japan, living walking mountans in mists, covered with whirling clouds. Living mountains of just sitting too. Living mountains, Blue mountains of as-it-is- ness, the naked reality. As Li Po writes:

    The birds have vanished down the sky.
    Now the last cloud drains away.
    We sit together, the mountain and me,
    until only the mountain remains.

    Gassho Taigu,

    A poem written while musing about Koan Study:

    Questions and answers
    Arise, unfold on their own
    In spring flower bloom.

    Truly, no amount of coaxing will make a blossom burst forth. Life has already turned the burner up as high as it can go, just sit back and let the water boil on its own; there isn't anything else to do.

    Gassho,
    Taylor

    Hello all,

    What a lovely post...my favorite part - Things take care of themselves.

    They do indeed, with no help from us it seems.

    Gassho,

    Thank you Taigu.

    Mountains really do walk, sometimes slower than we can imagine, sometimes so fast they consume entire villages!

    Mountains walking made the land under our feet.

    Gassho, Mandy

    Taigu,
    Thank you for this teaching and all your efforts. It seems as though Li Po has expressed Shikantaza perfectly.

    Re: True Eye, True I

    I got a few ideas when i look at this picture or photo:

    1. is like when i sit, my mind become look like this picture, when i look out, is exactly look like this picture in my mind.
    2. also got a idea in this universe, you are the central, look far, layer by layer, lighter by lighter.
    3. is like your heart, your heart got cover by lots of layers, lots of them but far from your heart.
    4. curious what happens in those different mountain.


    gossho, Taigu
