What Springtime teaches us

Heaven and Earth give themselves.

Air, water, plants, animals, and humans give themselves to each other.

It is in this giving-themselves-to-each-other that we actually live.

Whether you appreciate it or not, it is true.

Kodo Sawaki, 1880 – 1965, Japanese Sōtō Zen teacher
