    The 102nd of 108 Gates Of Dharma Illumination

    Gate One Hundred and two
    Read the following, place it in your heart and sleep on it. Then, tomorrow, live it until evening when you can leave a brief comment on what you may have received during the process.

    Entry into all conduct is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we attain realization of the Buddha-eye.

    All Conduct : Includes right conduct of the actions of the body, mouth and mind. (see Gates 5,6&7)

    By “Dharma Gate”, We mean a teaching or practice that can lead to spiritual growth: some kind of positive outcome in terms of our practice. A way to approach the truth.

    Koans:
    "There is a story explaining the state (gate5) that exists in common for all Buddhist Monks is in their conduct - in the actions of their real life. "

    Best to be Buddha
    Here and now
    Never tomorrow.

    "They may forget what you said, (gate6) ...but they will never forget how you made them feel. "- Zen is Right here / Suzuki

    Silence could be a cop out
    When inwardly I rage and shriek
    Ah! That is where that gate is.

    "Suzuki Often said (gate7)we shouldn't have "a gaining idea" or any idea of attainment."

    The whole of the earth is medicine.
    The actions of your mind become another's medicine.
    You would do well not to corrupt them.
    Leave your thoughts loving.

    Most note worthy replies :
    Me first (and only);
    My thoughts lead to my words and my actions.
    If I can find the Dharma eye
    My judgment ends with me.

    Like a clown
    I juggle thoughts, words and actions.
    They rarely stay in the flow.
    Undiscouraged,
    I'm constantly picking them from the floor.

    Don’t fight the current
    Just let go
    The stream knows the way
