Zen teacher asked, “Can you hear the sound of the stream?” “Yes,” said the student.
And the teacher said, “Enter there.”
When we are not bound by the story of our lives—the fictions, really—and not bound by the effort of knowing what everything is and where it’s going and what it should be, then a new kind of freedom appears. The body feels that and becomes at ease. You experience the wonder and beauty of just being here in the world of consciousness.
