Just is just is

Just is just is

Just is just is , nothing else, just is. What isn’t just is … so when walking just walk, when typing just type …

Sometimes you’re not meant to get something, it is just the moment passing. A famous Ch’an master answer to any and every question is : ‘A boat crosses the Yangtze’ … it could be an answer to anything … what is the question though?

What is the question? Who is asking? From where does the query arise?

And now?

Why did Bodhidharma come from the West? A boat crosses the Yangtze.

What sort of question is that? Does it matter – it arises from the same place as every other question.

It’s like life, sometimes we dip in, sometimes to dip out … sometimes we enjoy the experiences, sometimes we don’t … sometimes we can’t see the wood for the trees and sometimes we don’t see the trees at all, or the wood …

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side. The other side – the place from whence we arrive and to whence we depart.

Knock once if there is someone there; knock twice if no one is there !
