Another Dabbling in Zen
A monk asked Fa-yen: “As for the finger I will not ask about it. But what is the moon?”
The Master said: “Where is the finger that you don’t ask about?”
So the monk asked: “As for the moon, I will not ask about it. But what is the finger?”
The Master said: “The moon!”
The monk challenged him: “I asked about the finger. Why did you answer, ‘the moon’?”
The Master replied: “Because you asked about the finger.”
Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free: Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.
“What is the Tao?” a monk asked.
“It is right in front of your nose!” the Master answered.
“So why can’t I see it?” the monk continued.
“Your Me is in the way,” the Master answered.
