A dream ... in a dream

Our mind activity is always characterized by thoughts which arise here and there ...

As soon as we have a satisfactory feeling,

want to repeat it and then we try a big disappointment to have it never any more in the same way to every illusion necessarily follows a disappointment it and necessary a deep contemplation to understand this during Zazen sees himself the illusion reality
it is necessary to observe deeply.

A dream ... in a dream

Words of the Teacher Guareschi have struck me very much:

In our life must consider its problems

"not very important"

while those of the others

"seriously importing"

the life becomes simple ...

Then it is not a conscience personal and limited by its will,

but a wider conscience about this any more,

the famous Musashi Miyamoto samurai has written:

" make some other ones

its waking up not to follow

the pleasure for him was "

The pine shadow

The teacher Kodo Sawaki has written a poetry:

The pine shadow


on the moon

We can simply clean our mirror,
we can simply clean the dirty one
if we are able to see it!

the important one the clean one is not the dirty one,

but only the repeated action to clean and continuously clean
without appropriating is of nothing,
without opposing us to nothing and this it is possible to everybody,
in every circumstance

From the null beginning it exists!

In the Zen there is one phrase famous:

"Honrai mu ichi motsu! "

that it means

"From the null beginning it exists! "

From the beginning it does not mean only

"from the beginning of the times",


"from the beginning of our life."

but it means also

"when it begins a thought"
"where it takes to origin a thought..."

The answer to this Koan you must find in your self

you it is made the question:

"Which is the origin of the thought?"
