ESSHŌ’S PATH 正法眼蔵 三十七

If you are seeking the way
do not consult a map
and most certainly
do not follow in the footsteps
of the wisest person.
Do not ever ask directions
for it is only when
you are utterly lost
and have no idea
which way to go,
that your every step
is a step along the Way.


A reflection on Case 37 of the Shobogenzo.
