Thread: The Morning Star Simply Shines

    The Morning Star Simply Shines

    .
    In a world in which we chase, need more more more, try to fix, analyze/categorize/rate, like and dislike, feel dissatisfaction, long for or regret the past, distress at today, fear for the future, rush toward or run away ...

    ... one sits Shikantaza with nothing more to chase, nothing more needed, all just as it is with nothing to repair. the divisions and categories dropped away, in equanimity beyond personal likes and dislikes, whole and complete in sitting itself, thoughts of past and future dropped away, no other place to go or in need of going. Zazen is good for nothing because, in sitting Zazen, nothing more is needed but sitting itself.

    The morning star simply shines.

    I am just a priest-in-training, any resemblance between what I post and actual teachings is purely coincidental.

    I am a novice priest-in-training. Anything what I say must not be considered as teaching
    and should be taken with a 'grain of salt'.

    The end of Henry David Thoreau's Walden:

    Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.

    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).

    "in equanimity beyond personal likes and dislikes"

    Yes, it's so easy to forget that our preferences put us in opposition to the present moment. Thank you for this reminder. Very happy that this post happened to pop up at the top of my list of unread threads this morning.

    Gassho,
