Welcome to WEEK 15 of Beyond Self 2012 in SunnyRoomStudio. Today I simply want to provide a quote and let you interpret it — in your journals, during your weekly meditation, or both. Zen is simplicity. And often other things, even excessive thought, direct us away from simplicity.
In a snowfall that covers the winter grass a white heron
uses his own whiteness to disappear.
