just die over and over

 

Don’t move.

Just die over and over.

Don’t anticipate. Nothing can save you now,

because this is your last moment. Not even enlightenment

will help you now, because you have no other moments.

With no future, be true to yourself — 

and don’t move.

 

Shunryu Suzuki

 

chasing fame and fortune

 

Pause 

to consider 

the widespread degree 

to which people prefer chasing 

fame and fortune to refining their 

understanding of the Way. The evidence 

is that status and riches make people 

more insecure and frantic, 

not less, but do 

they examine 

this?

 

 

The wise 

person does,

and acts accordingly. 

She divests herself of unnecessary 

possessions and abandons frenetic activity. 

With her quiet mind and untroubled 

heart, she is at home anywhere 

in the universe wearing 

a patched 

robe.

don’t waste time

married to the sea

 

I wouldn’t say

that in recent times those who

study the Way do not try hard, but they often

just memorize Zen stories and try to pass judgement on

the ancient and modern Zen masters, picking and choosing among

words and phrases, creating complicated rationalizations

and learning stale slogans. Will they ever be done

with this? If you study Zen like this, all you

will get is a worn out collection

of antiques and

curios.

What

is the good

in clinging to slogans,

quotations, and formulas?

This is passing around stale bread.

Just shut the language door,

open your awareness,

and don’t look

back.
