Where there are humans
By Kobayashi Issa
(1763 - 1828)

Where there are humans
You'll find flies,
And Buddhas.







When I consider the virtue of abusive words,
I find the scandal-monger is my good teacher. If we do not become angry at gossip, We have no need for powerful endurance and compassion. To be mature in Zen is to be
mature in expression,
And full-moon brilliance of dhyana and prajna
Does not stagnate in emptiness. Not only can I take hold of complete
enlightenment by myself, But all Buddha-bodies, like sands of the Ganges, Can become awakened in exactly the the some way

My teacher, Roger Eischens, often said "Where attention goes, energy flows" -- great idea, pay attention to what makes us **truly** happy!

...there is a place in you where you have never been wounded, where there's still a sureness in you, where there's a seamlessness in you, and where there is a confidence and tranquility in you. ~John O'Donohue

At first, our moments of happiness are like the tiny green shoots of a new plant. They are fragile and vulnerable to disruption. Unless we give them room to grow, they wither away, and this has already happened too many times in my life. Today I will be alert to any seed of happiness, and I will clear a space for it to grow. I will water it with my attention and nourish it with my commitment."
Hugh Prather
