A lightning flash:
between the forest trees
I have seen water.
Shiki Masaoka – (1867-1902)
“All spiritual teachings are about one thing – what it is to be fully and positively human – in the world, with others.
This we do in relation to that Whole – out of which we each are an infinitesimally small, temporary, wave-form.
We live in order to awake to that mysterious Whole, overcome ego and learn to serve better – ‘Awake; De-egotise; Serve’ – That’s it! But we need to start somewhere. And simplicity is better than complexity.
We can (re)start right now with Thích Nhất Hạnh Zen Buddhist master’s teaching on mindfulness; ‘Smile: Breathe and Go slowly/consciously’ – try it! Instant success is built in from the first smile. Its’ irresistible!
The rest is a matter of cultural clothing & historical accident of birth.
True religion helps, false religion hinders – in getting the realizations needed.” – RP
