Don't seek reality, just put an end to opinions.
~Sheng-ts'an

No yesterday, no tomorrow, and no today.
~Sheng-ts'an

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there.
~Yasutani Roshi

It is better to practice a little than talk a lot.
~Muso Kokushi

When you are deluded and full of doubt, even a thousand books of scripture are not enough. When you have realized understanding, even one word is too much.
~Fen-Yang

The whole moon and the entire sky are reflected in one dewdrop on the grass.
~Dogen

It is everywhere
~Chuang-tsu

Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought.
~Basho

How sad that people ignore the near and search for truth afar.
~Hakuin

No seed ever sees the flower.

 

How do you step from the top of a 100-foot pole?

When you get there, there isn't any there there.

No seed ever sees the flower. It can only rely on faith that it can become the flower Rory wants one to be. Safe it is for the cedling under ground. Safest to do nothing, yet the seedling has a longing for something it does not know or had yet to experiense. But still, safest to stay under ground, in darkness, not moving. Many are the dangers of moving, better to wait, in darkness, cold, lonly, avoiding the sun and all one has
the potential to be. (loosly based on Osho zen-tarot, with a touch of kafka in the ending)

How do you step from the top of a 100-foot pole? You make sure it lies verically on the ground offcourse!

When you get there, there isn't any there there. Nor any here here, anywhere or nowhere!
