I have found a way to live. It cuts straight to the heart bypassing all the concepts and mind. I have found a way to live and it’s through radical devotion to my teacher who points out the truth in the midst of this lucid dream we walk in day in and day out. Gardenias falling on your eyes and face as seconds tick into decades. If you were serious you wouldn’t dare let up for a moment.
I have found a way to live and it is a radical reality consideration moment to moment. It involves complete turning of the four faculties of body, mind, breath, and feeling to the Source. Standing in that Source presence is the waterless fall of rocks Watanabe searches for in his Zen rock garden and his Basho poems, and here in the midst of this surreal paradise I am getting drenched. So conduct it. I have found a way to live and it is through radical devotion to the one that would wake you from this dream into the Real.
