zazen

my hara is heavy.
my ears hurt.
i smile.

breathe comes softly,
like silk  — pull deep, hold
rest
i exhale through myself, rather than out.
it feels nice.

“Allow the emptiness of non-doing to bring you peace.”

He who acts destroys it.
He who grasps fails to attain it.
Thus the sage wu wei (does not act) and thus does not destroy,
Does not grasp and thus does not fail to attain.
People often destroy their work when it is almost completed.
Proceed at the end as at the beginning and the work will not be destroyed.

kill the buddha.
