Feb 9 – 15

When I received the news of cancer, I understood. Oh, yes, what is required of me now is that I be fully present to each new experience as it comes and that I engage with it as completely as I can. I don’t mean that I said this to myself. Nothing so conscious as that. I mean that my whole being turned, and looked, and moved toward the experience.

Tetsuma the Cow

Ryû Tetsuma came to Isan.

Isan said, “Old Cow, you have come!”

Tetsuma said,  “Tomorrow there will be a great feast at Mt. Tai. Will you go there, Master?”

Isan lay down and stretched himself out. Tetsuma left immediately.
