Daily Zen

To cut off all thinking and let go of all conditions, all cause and effect-this is already attaining the truth within your own mind. You can then be called a true person of the way who has nothing left to accomplish!

How wonderful! Such a one is completely unfettered and from moment to moment does not make anything: when hungry, he eats; when tired, he sleeps. He mingles easily and without hindrance in the busy ports and alehouses. The ebb and flow of time does not concern him, and yet spring comes and the green grass grows, as it always has. 

- So Sahn (1520-1604)
