The Lilies of New Life: It is spring and John reads poetry of the season. Dalung’s koan, Pure Everlasting Body, opens the gate to joy and uncertainty in our time, and this splendid season. Poems by Wallace Stevens, Elizabeth Bishop, William Carlos Williams and winter into spring haiku by John. Original music performed by Jordan McConnell, as recorded Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021. PZI Zen Online.
John’s evening talking is brief, yet poignant. There is a light and a joy and they are here now. It doesn’t wait until you improve yourself, your partner, enemy, or live in a different colored state.
