The Forest and The Trees

Stay focus on the life path to Nirvana. One may study and live with the Dharma in any surrounding and under all life circumstances. It is essential to be vigilant and not fall into the trappings of the metaphor "Unable to see the forest for the trees." There are a myriad of means to facilitate the study and practice of the Dharma. It is vital to not be caught in the whirlwind of the concrete words and the varied conveyance methods.

"Be vigilant and not fall into the trappings of the metaphor "Unable to see the forest for the trees."
It is critical to not let the concrete agent distract from the transmission of The TeachingWatching "Kumano" reminds me the importance of remaining centered and living in the Dharma. All outer circumstances are merely facilitors to practice The Teaching.  It is essential to not get distracted by the apparatus of transmission nor be stuck in the machinery of mechanical practice.

"Both our so-called luck and misfortune are the result of our Karmic doings. We will encounter whom we must to meet, until our Karmic entanglements are fully resolved. The Karmic world is a closed system and while inside it we shall not escape our own doings."

For most of us, the phrase “sitting in meditation” refers to the practice of physically sitting still and and re-focusing our attention to the present moment. Living with the true Zen meaning of sitting in meditation, we effortlessly exist at inner peace while at rest and while in motion. Within the true state of sitting in mediation, we live within the life stream at full awareness and adaptively respond to the life circumstances with our Inner Light and an universal compassion.

It is only when One recognise that both permanence and impermanence are confined within Karmic life’s innate duality, that One is ultimately set free from discriminating thoughts.
