Spiritual writings on caring, stillness, and Zen with Basho

 

Caring too much is as dangerous as caring not enough, because when you care too much it means that you have reasons to live, and that, my friend, is as encumbering as having a reason to die. The fanatic is anyone who seeks beyond their own living stillness.

 

When you finish the out-going aspect of your journey, and you begin the return, that is when you find that now the external must serve the internal, and not the other way around.

 

I am an advocate, not an apologist. I proffer, I do not plea.

 

If you can both forget everything at every moment and also let the form operate, then the two shall be one- the father and the son, joined by the absence called ‘I’.

 

Look at them without yourself.

 

When you let go, you freefall.

 

We are like islands in the ocean, separated by the water and yet whole beneath the sea, the waves, and the depths of our seeing.

 

“Do not follow in the footsteps of the men of old,

seek what they sought.”

                                    Basho
