Daily Zen

Searching for Gathered Fragrance Temple:
Miles of mountains rise into clouds,
Ancient trees darken the narrow trail.
Where is that mountain temple bell?

Snowmelt crashes down on boulder,
The sun grows cold in the pines before
It drowns in the lake. Keep your karma
In good working order:
Many dragons lie in wait.

- Wang Wei (710-761)

There is only karma.

And we have some control over her.

I mean there is only suffering. It is not yours or mine. There is no one there who suffers. This means no suffering for you and me. Only suffering.

May we do our part to reduce the suffering that exists--real and illusory.
