Come back soon Joel! My contribution for a new week, from the Daily Zen Calender:

All are nothing but flowers
In a flowering universe.
-Soen Nakagawa

And a little more about him:

To relate Kin's quote to the MA, the simplest weapons have lasted for thousands of years because of their effectiveness in simplicity. It's simple, how many people own one utility or hunting knife? How easy is it to find a stick and pick it up? The merit in simplicity is itself, the ability to accomplish much very easily.

From the Daily Zen Calender:

The person, who, being really on the Way, falls upon hard times in the world, will not, as a consequence, turn to that friend who offers him refuge and comfort and encourages their old self to survive. Rather, he will seek out someone who will faithfully and inexorably help him to risk himself, so that he may endure the difficulty and pass courageously through it. Only to the extent that a person exposes himself over and over again to annihilation, can that which is indestructible be found within them. In this daring lies dignity and the spirit of true awakening.

-Karlfried Durckheim

That sounds very Grandois, I can't say that I can identify myself with that quote (well, doesn't matter, there's always hope for the next life, isn't there?)

Birds chirp, dogs run, mountains are high, valleys low. Itís all perfect wisdom! The seasons change, the stars shine in the heavens; itís perfect wisdom. Regardless of whether we realize it or not, we are always in the midst of the Way. Or, more strictly speaking, we are nothing but the Way itself.

- Taizan Mawzumi
