According to Nietzsche humans have an amphibious nature. To be at home in both the water faith and on land doubt. From a western belief we are allowed to glance back towards land but never take the possibility of leaving the water. What does leaving the water mean for a Zen Buddhist?

Our mind from the origin is quiet. When we follow too many outer ideas, our mind becomes heavy, because we create a shadow. We have many memories of the people who have died, the souls that have travelled across the water, yet even that we need to free ourselves from, or how else can we be truly quiet in this very moment?

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
