    Satori means creating your own life

    I love this quote from Kodo Sawaki. I just wanted to share it.

    Love the quote, Myozan. This is something I'm barely beginning to understand, although I feel lucky to have any concept at all. I see that The Zen Teaching of Homeless Kodo is out of print. Are there any other materials written about him? I've picked up a little bit through Opening the Hand of Thought; he seems like an amazing man.

    These quotes always make me smile:
    (Too bad they're mostly one liners, I feel some could use some elaboration!)

    I have been on the look out for The Zen teaching of homeless Kodo too! :lol:

    Wisdom Books' website claims that it is "available...," and then in ambiguous small print underneath "this title has been delisted..."

    ...What does it mean to create your own life ?
    Is it even possible, to _not_ create your own life ?

    Satori means creating your own life

    In a nightmare, you feel like the helpless victim of the dream and you can't wake up. When I was a kid and had a lot of nightmares, I sometimes managed to wake myself up, but not completely. I was still in the dream, but I had some degree of control. I no longer fully identifed with the dream. I had some distance to what was happening to me and I could steer the dream in a different direction if I wanted to. You could say I was creating my own dream.

    Just waking up one naturally creates life which we call our own.

    Being in a dream or delusion there is more risk of destructive behaviors.

    The farmer asked the cow,
    "Do you have buddha nature?"
