Sokei-An

‘When we forget ourselves and abandon ourselves entirely to Nature, the great force of Nature operates our functions and our sense perceptions. Our performance at that moment is not our own. Our self is completely wiped out. We are submerged, absorbed in the bosom of Nature.’ (Zen Pivots)

Words from an early zen pioneer in the US, from almost a hundred years ago now. Still just as beautiful and true.
