Shodo Harada

‘In what way do we realize and awaken to the Buddha’s mind? Everything in nature has a physical body, yet a rock doesn’t call itself a rock, or a flower call itself a flower. Only humans are stuck on how they are or should be. The most healthy was of being is to have no need to explain our being, but for it to manifest naturally. We get stuck because we feel a need to explain.’ (Not One Single Thing)

As often, I feel I need to add an asterisk to say, this is not promoting a kind of ‘never explain, never apologise’ arrogance.
