Willing to Look

If we are willing to look long enough in the mirror of zazen [seated meditation], past seeing ourselves as objects, we have the potential to see that we are nature itself—we are born and will die, just as the trees, flowers, and animals in the wild do.

– Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, “The Hidden Lamp”
