Not being tense but ready.
Not thinking but not dreaming.
Not being set but flexible.
Liberation from the uneasy sense of confinement.
It is being wholly and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.

This Week’s Koan

Book of Serenity #97
“The Emperor’s Treasure”

Emperor Dôkô spoke to Kôke saying,

“I have attained the treasure of the Central Plain. However, no one can set a price on it.”

Kôke said, “Your Majesty, please lend it to me so that I may see.”

The emperor pulled the straps of his helmet hood with both hands.

Kôke said, “Who can dare to set a price on the emperor’s treasure!”
