Rich Aimlessness, Dharma Talk by Henry Shukman (Video)

Henry continues looking at the famous koan collection, the Gateless Gate. He explores and defines “Gateless” which includes how to be a useful participate in the this troubled world while also living from no-self. Henry then turns to Case 7 and master Joshu who practiced Zen for 100 years.

When we sit, Henry asks us to consider these questions…

Are we trying to get somewhere?
Do we have a destination?
What is it like to let go of any sense of a destination?

I notice that now, this is what fills the spaceless space… all we have to do is release what isn’t this now {planning, remembering, the myriad thoughts}. If we are still and effortless it releases itself. ~ Henry Shukman
