Where Is Not You?

In the Tao Te Ching, it's written:

"Thirty spokes share a wheel;

yet it is an empty center

that makes it useful.

You can mold clay into a vessel;

yet, it is its emptiness

that makes it useful.

Cut doors and windows

from the walls of a house;

but the ultimate use of the house

depends on space where nothing exists.

Therefore, something is shaped into what is;

but its usefulness comes from what is not."

So now this sherpa, roaming mountains and valleys, drifting like clouds, flowing like rivers asks you as YOU... Where is the emptiness upon which You as YOU authentically turns? Shikantaza! Just sitting! Notice!

一We Are the Practice Itself
