Winter Grass

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.

~ Dogen Zenji (1200-1253; Japanese Zen Master)
