    Zazen is compass-ionate

    Zazen is compass-ionate

    Yes, folks, indeed it is.

    Take what is tumultuous, sit it down in zazen
    Like a true compass, zazen points
    And in that pointing, all directions thereby are known

    Take what is submerged, sit it down in zazen
    Like a bubble of air, tugging toward ‘up’
    No amount of being rolled around by life’s undertow
    Can mask the fact
    ‘Up’ is ‘up’

    zazen, if not now, in this lifetime, then when?

    Just dusting off this beautiful thing from 2010.

    Thank you Keishin, wherever you are (hope you have the compass with you).
