The Way of Everyday Life Author:Zen Master Dogen's Genjokoan with Commentary by Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi In search of the miraculous, many of us have spent years looking for the extraordinary insight or experience that would transform our lives -- taking psychedelics, dabbling in the occult, engaging in long years of analysis or therapy. — But in fact, this ordinary, everyday life is all the miracle we need. A puddle on the earth, graffiti on a wall... more », a mirror reflecting us back to ourselves. Each is a world of rich and infinite possibilities. By becoming one with each situation and thing, we return to where we have always been -- right here, right now.
In the face of the spiritual and psychological paraphernalia we may be used to, Maezumi Roshi's gentle words will seem fresh and unassuming.
