My words don’t seem to want to come me out and play with me these days, so I thought I would just quote someone else. This quote seems particularly apropos during early spring, when the light and sound are so apparent.
“The mountains, rivers, earth, grasses, trees and forest are always emanating a subtle precious light, day and night, always emanating a subtle precious sound, demonstrating and expounding to all people the unsurpassed ultimate truth. It is just because you miss it right where you are, or avoid it even if you face it, that you are unable to attain actual use of it.”
Chan Buddhist Master, Yuansou
11th century China
