People who really have their minds on the Way.
Do not forget work on the fundamental.
No matter what they are doing.
Yet if they still distinguish this work from ordinary activities,
even as they do them together, they will naturally be concerned
about being distracted by activities and forgetting the meditation work.
This is because of viewing things as outside the mind.
We are not going in circles,
we are going upwards.
The path is a spiral;
we have already climbed many steps.
Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky.
Conscious breathing is my anchor.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.
Thích Nhat Hạnh
Teachers open the door…
You enter by yourself.
There are many seekers who analyze but never practice zazen.
They just keep the books,
like bankers who count money without themselves being rich.
