Dogen Sangha Blog

From Master Nishijima's blog, pointed out to me by Rick in a comment below:
When we think about what is the Enlightenment, it is our real experience that we are, not in the world of mind, or in the world of matter, but we are just living in the real world actually, not only intellectually, or perceptively.
I guess that many people complain that such a simple fact can be recognized by everyone easily. But actually I think that there may be many people, who think that they are living in the world of mind, and at the same time there are many people, who think that they are living in the world of matter.

Yes, it is so difficult to get a grasp of existence as is. Too often there is so much to doubt that we fall back on that only seeming faith which is that we cannot doubt that we are doubting. (Descartes) What we have to realize is that our flesh and bones and particular chrono-spatio status are all contingencies of the fundamental reality which is that WE are there. When you feel the blades of grass through your finger tips, are they the things that feel?

Well then what is?

Quote from Suzuki"...when a fish swims in water does he see the water? Can you see your own eyes? Without bardo there can be no satori. Only without senses can one percieve, taste with your eye, see with your tongue.Hear with your nose, smell with your ear,feel with your soul.
