Words of Wisdom #28 & #29

“As a fish that swims in the water and doesn’t understand the nature of the sea, or a bird that flies in the air and doesn’t understand the sky, so man in his finite mind doesn’t understand the infinite. The only reality for the bird is to fly and of the fish is to swim. So, in the same way, the only reality of man is to live: to live the life, to die the death. Living with awareness every instant, accepting not to understand the ultimate meaning, this is illumination”.

-Eihei Dogen

“Time, place and space are illusions, not existing except in the mind of men, which must set limits and bounds in order to understand”.

-Robert E. Howard
