Practices for Feeling the Time
Every day at mealtime, the teacher would take the buckets of rice to the front of hall, dance and laugh heartily, saying, “Bodhisattvas, come and eat your rice!”
He wasn’t being kindhearted.
Mountains, clouds, waves, birds, lions, and teachers dance. The trees dance and foxes steal shoes and dance in the moonlight. When I sit at night, the mist dances and just sitting, I’m dancing too. Thoughts move slowly like waves that have come a long way. Gradually the mind and heart became at peace in the center of the dancing.
—John Tarrant Roshi
Meditation is a place where you are welcome, and this is a way to do it together. Koan meditation is based on uncertainty, and was invented for a difficult era. For these reasons, it helps us to be friendly with our time—to find a way to make decisions, to love the life we have. With all the difficulties, it’s good to be alive.
We are in a PZI Zen Online format for these weekly gatherings, while we remain sequestered to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Join us in the PZI Digital Temple on Sunday mornings. All are welcome. Register to participate.
