  One day Yao-shan Wei-yen (750-834), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an master,
was asked by the host of the monastery to give his sermon to the assembly who
for a long while was expecting his teaching. Yao-shan said: "Strike the bell."

vertical line                                                                                       You do not need to leave your room. . .

Remain sitting at your table and listen.

                                                                                     Do not even listen, simply wait.

Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary.

                                                      The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked.

It has no choice.

                 It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.


                                                                                                                    - Franz Kafka

Ah yes.  Yes indeed.  Here in Crow Country the perceived shortest distance between two points follows the great circle inclination of the sun illuminating the organic way of no-dig gardening.

vertical line Oh the world is a huge blank, all of it!

There are glimpses of misinterpreted reality when the flashlight of attention illuminates small parts of that vast emptiness.

Forget the flashlight - turn on the lamp!

both the lamp and attention.

not an either one.

attention is the flashlight.

and awareness is the lantern.

awareness is automatic.

attention directs awareness.

its both.
