Sekkei Harada

‘Human beings experience a whole range of emotional and rational states, including joy, anger, sadness, understanding, and not understanding. These are all part of the Dharma or the Way. We can freely feel these things, freely think these things. What other freedom beyond this are you looking for? I would really like you to believe that in out present condition we are endowed with the Dharma in this way.’  (The Essence of Zen)

I think it is hard for us to accept the dharma of not understanding especially, but can we be okay with not getting it?
