… Master Dogen said : ” During the whole day and the whole night, things come to mind and the mind bothers about them. In peace with them, we perseveringly pursue our path.”
This is to say that we practice sincerely, whole heartedly, during all the activities of the daily life, without knowing if we are falling into hell or jumping into paradise. If our faith is established, we are free, we live awakened.
So, our practice is not a prayer for the future but the expression of the gratitude which is already there…
