CASE 4 - The World-Honored One Points To The Earth
A temple is built by a blade of grass, every grass-tip and every grain of dust holding all the earth, all the Buddha's body, all time and space ...
Our theme here at Treeleaf is "All of Life is our Temple" ...
Can we learn to see every bit of this life and world, every inch, as Sacred, one's Practice Place, the Temple?
Well yes... But the thing that strikes me here is can we learn, as that implies something that is not here, but there, an separation of sorts, i would rather say omething like can we come to see...

In fact, what part of your life do you feel could never be Sacred, one's Practice Place, the Temple, no matter how much you try?
I know of a simpleton here on treeleaf that always says, "it's all good practice", and i believe he more and more has come to that himself, so i don't know, maybe tehreis such a thing, but at the moment i cant see it.
