Sit In the Fire


The experience of studying Zen is like hiding your body in fire: even if you have iron guts and a brass heart, here they will surely melt and flux.

-Chien-ju

James: Great imagery here on impermanence and change. This teaching is not unlike the refiners fire teaching found in Christianity.

Wow. Everything I've written and thought, but more concise.

Darn. Need to work on that!

Soen Joon: Yes, the truth is always so simple.

I bow to the Buddha within you!
