‘I’m trying to get you to interact directly with reality. It is as if we have an orange in our hands. We see the orange and we wonder, “Is that a delicious orange?” We can directly touch it, we peel it, smell it, take a bite out of it, and yet we are still asking outwardly about it. Maybe we ask someone else, “Is that orange delicious?” Or we look it up in a book written long ago, “Do the sutras say it’s a delicious orange? Do they tell me how to experience that orange? Am I doing it right? Am I worthy of tasting it myself?” We may ask a teacher, “How should I taste that orange?”’ (from Zen Embodiment)

LOL Thank you for that. I googled him and opened some tabs in the browser and will look at them later. I receive your emails and read them every day. I appreciate the photos too that are sometimes in them. It sounds like you are enjoying your new place.
Thanks David. I follow Corey’s blog, and enjoy the way he talks about practice. I am glad you are finding benefit in my blog. And yes, my new place is lovely, thank you
