Don't open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument.  Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.  RUMI

mountains and waters

Before I studied Zen for thirty years, I saw mountains as mountains, and waters as waters. When I arrived at a more intimate knowledge, I came to the point where I saw that mountains are not mountains and waters are not waters. But now I have got its very substance, I am at rest. for it is just that I see mountains once again as mountains and waters once again as waters.

老僧三十年前未參禪時、見山是山、見水是水、及至後夾親見知識、有箇入處、見山不是山、見水不是水、而今得箇體歇處、依然見山秪是山、見水秪是水
