‘A monk asked Fengxhue, “Speech and silence are concerned with equality and differentation. How can I transcend equality and differentiation?”

Fengxhue said, “I always think of Hunan in the spring; partridges chirp among the many fragrant flowers.”‘ (The Blue Cliff Record)

The monk is stuck; Fengxhue is not just reminiscing. Speech or silence, what do you have to say?

  1. Letting go. As for me myself; I hold things too loosely. If I am taught the value of silence then the next day dont be surprised if you hear me screaming at the top of my lungs. It is not a clever zen move. I just find fault with everything eventually.
