Breath

The wonderful monk Dosho Port on his blog http://wildfoxzen.blogspot.com/has left a few prints about breathing in sitting Zen. After quoting Dogen's teacher, he writes as a conclusion to his short but insightful text:

Something as ungraspable as snow.

Let me put forward a few clumsy varitions to this already amazing verse:

Snow as ungraspable as anything

Snow as ungraspable as self watching snow

Snow as snow

since the last large snowstorm here, Ive been thinking along the same lines and just posted it this morning. I think what i wrote pales in comparison. Not that I need to compare :D

Thanks, Dirk, yes, no need to compare. It is not really relevant. What is really important is who you are.
