The whole universe showing itself…
Sometimes people ask: how can I get my practice into my daily life more? As if time on the cushion were segregated off from the rest of life.
I don’t see that distinction at all. Why would sitting not be part of life? All the lessons that we learn through sitting apply to all of life. The whole of Zen training is about life itself.
Just stop, look, listen, feel…
Right now: here it is.
The whole universe showing itself.
The whole heart open and experiencing what is being experienced.
