"It has to be exactly as it is, yet it can be any which way. Nothing has to be done in any particular way, yet it has to be done in the highest and best way.
"Sen no Rikyū once hired a carpenter to drive a nail into a pillar. After considering it thoroughly, he decided on the exact point. The carpenter made a little mark and then took a break. When he finally got around to actually hammering the nail in, he couldn't find his mark anymore. Sen no Rikyū reconsidered the matter and eventually called out, “Here, here's a good place!” When they looked at it closely, it was clear that it was exactly the same spot where the carpenter had made his mark before. In the middle of pure formlessness, there is an ultimate direction. In the same way there is an ultimate facial expression among a person's facial expressions.
"What's called “having magical powers” doesn't mean anything more than having a facial expression that isn't muddled.
"We think that we're constantly misled by our deluded feelings and that nothing can be done about it. We think that there's a push and pull between the Buddha's teaching and our foolish feelings. But that's backwards.
"The Buddha-dharma says that we aren't at all different from Buddha. All things manifest the truth. What you learn in the Buddha-dharma are the basics of practice.
"Practice means asking with your whole being the question, “What can I do right now for the Buddha Way?”
"Even in the case of putting down a teacup it makes a big difference if you simply let it fall or if you lower it carefully with your hand.
"The basis of all actions is to follow through to the end. If your mind is absent even just for a moment, you're no different from a corpse.
"It's all about finding the correct tension for your muscles and tendons. It's about becoming a person without gaps, about developing the proper tension and placement of muscles and tendons.
"What's the Buddha-dharma about? It's about having every aspect of your daily life pulled by Buddha.
"It isn't enough to hit the bull's eye once. Last's years perfect marks are useless. You've got to hit the bull's eye right now."
- Kodo Sawaki
I came across this guys after some investigation of Japanese Zen teachers of the 20th century. My interest was to discover if any modern Japanese Zen teachers showed qualities of the freedom and spunk of realised Zen teachers.
Anyway, he was a Soto Zen monk and a Zazen practitioner, which will make some people here suspicious, but there's something interesting about Kodo Sawaki. He was nicknamed "homeless Kodo" because he had no monastery or temple, choosing instead to travel around teaching laypeople.
There's a collection of short rants, from which I pulled this excerpt, over at Terebess.
How's that facial expression?

2021.12.04 04:29 Polar-Bear1928 Single-parenthood in the Wizarding World
The only family we really see up-close in the Wizarding World are the Weasleys. And they are the poster for a perfect 80’s family—devoted wife and mother, a loving father and husband, and their children. Molly gives up her career (I’m sure she was more than capable of working) and devotes her life to her children and husband. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. It’s wonderful, and I love the Weasleys.
Even in the muggle world (in Harry Potter), things don’t seem to be all that different from the Wizarding one. Petunia and Vernon are a typical couple with their typical child. The Grangers seem to be a traditional family, too.
Heck, as young as James and Lily were, even they got married before they had Harry.
But I was wondering if there were more non-traditional families, if I may. If I recall correctly, we don’t see any single-parents at all. Is there any mention of any single parents throughout the series?
In your opinion, do you think the culture in the Wizarding World is that single mothers or fathers might seem unusual to most?
Single parents are just as wonderful and amazing as the traditional married parents. I wish they had gotten the representation they deserve.
