Whirling washing machine, shrilling cartoon on TV, humming road traffic.
Hammering my head.
Resistance to noise intensifies migraine.
I sit Zazen.
Body and mind flow.
Whirling washing machine, shrilling cartoon on TV, humming road traffic.
The sound of Silence.

Gassho

Amid all that clamor, you find silence in Zazen; beautiful gassho2

We meet the world through the senses, as the sensory world IS our world. Where else could we practice the Dharma?

As we sense the world
We live it
Where else could we be?

Our sense organs at least show us how to ask: Are we doing it right?
