    We're All In This Together (5) - You are a Mountain

    There are reasons that Zen folks love the mountains and build their temples close by: They teach strength, beauty and wisdom.

    Master Dogen left us this poem ...

    Sitting Zazen as night gets late, still not sleepy;
    I realize more and more that practicing the Way is best
    done in mountain forests.
    The sound of valley streams enters my ears; the
    moonlight comes into my eyes.
    Other than this, what other cares should I have?

    Beautiful!


    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.

    Feel free to message me if you wish to talk about issues around practicing with physical limitations. This is something I have been sitting with for a fair while and am happy to help with suggestions or just offer a listening ear.

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).
