*The Jewel is in the Lotus, Rise Great Sun.


When walking just walk.

When Sitting just sit,

Above all, don’t wobble!

Zen Master Lin Chi

Out this morning quite early, before sunrise. The steady rhythmic sound of foot fall on dry snow almost hypnotic, the thin bright air had a particular ‘zing’ to it. My heart sang.

Anybody who is of a mind to ‘wobble’ at the moment, I would recommend not. Have faith, the Jewel is in the palm of your hand.

Remember, don’t wobble!

*Go to this link for the full verse. I particularly like the ending line: “The dewdrop slips into the shining sea”.
