Mind-Only: Dharma Talk

When we cut through all of the buzzing in our heads and fully immerse ourselves in the present moment, we 'become' the present moment. This is what Zen Master Dogen called "dropping off mind and body." Whatever we are doing or feeling 'becomes' the entire universe universe. This isn't some special or mystical state; it's our original no-state state. Zen practice is about cutting through the imagined separation in our lives and allowing us to experience the entire universe's presence in every moment of our lives.
