Sunday Spirituality | . nature . Voice of Suzen zen poetry

. . . to live according to your true nature is to live the life of a buddha . . . . . . . . . .

 

o

. . . . . nature . . . . .

 

Adult men experience nature first hand through a woman’s body.

Woman knows through her body she is part of the larger body –

woman stops man plundering. . . .

.

.

.

Woman says – stop plundering

There will not be enough for my child

Man says

But I am protecting you

.

Woman says

Plundering is not protection

Abundance is protection for my child

.

This is NOT culture

.

Men plunder, women nurture

.

This is NOT Culture

This is not nature

.

The western myth of man’s superiority

To nature

Has led us to a spiritual and

Environmental dead-end

.

This is NOT culture

This is not nature

This is not living

.

Men have said to men

Why have your women not stopped you . . . .

.

.

.

In zen essence, we say

“If you would only breathe with the breath of a newborn baby

why would your spirit not stay connected to the mother . . .?”

.

Man forgets

The earth is our mother . . . . . .

to plunder is the end of living

and the beginning of survival

.

Man forgets to identify with the divine mystery

Woman forgets to remind man about the mystery

.

Babies usually remember to breathe

.

The voice of the mystery

Is spirit

Breath of life

Essence
