I’m melting…

So, how many different ways can you melt?

Bodhidharma sits facing the wall. His future successor stands in the snow and presents his severed arm to Bodhidharma. He cries: “My mind is not pacified. Master, pacify my mind.”

Bodhidharma says: “If you bring me that mind, I will pacify it for you.”

The successor says: “When I search my mind I cannot hold it.”

Bodhidharma says: “Then your mind is pacified already.”

(from “The Gateless Gate”)

Defying Gravity

Be well, and at peace,

    I love how the last picture looks like some frothy surf washing up on a beach, an asphalt beach.
