Treeleaf Zen

The way to settle the ripples in a vessel of agitated water is not by doing something … not by patting down the ripples with our hand, not by blowing on them or trying to will them down … but by doing nothing at all, allowing the waters to still and balance of their own accord.

The way to settle the ripples of thought and emotion of the mind is much the same … not bydoing something … but by doing nothingat all with great focus, letting the mind still and balance of one’s own accord by our very sitting still.


(remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells;
a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended)
