Not to be reached by traveling is the end of the world,
Yet there is no release from sorrow
Unless you reach the end of the world.

The one who is wise and lives... continue...

IT'S USED EVERYDAY BUT NOT KNOWN
When Gensha Shibi, a Chinese Zen master, and a general were eating cakes together,
the general asked:
- What is it that's used everyday but not known?
The master handed a piece of cake to the general and said:
- Eat this piece of cake.
The general ate the piece of cake, then repeated the question.
The master said:
-That's what's used everyday but not known.
