Find that place
where sky and land
are joined together
and grasp it tightly.
It is like looking
deeply into a mirror,
what you see
is not at all you
but what it sees
is that it is you.
Do sky and earth
come apart when it
let’s its grasp free?

A reflection on case 78 of tDogen’s Shobogenzo Koans (True Dharma Eye)
