I raise my hand; I take a book from the other side of the desk; I hear the boys playing ball outside my window; I see the clouds blown away by the neighboring woods - in all these I am practicing Zen, I am living Zen. No wordy discussion is necessary, nor any explanation.
I embrace emerging experience. I participate in discovery. I am a butterfly. I am not a butterfly collector.
- William Stafford
Yes, may it be. "I am a butterfly. I am not a butterfly collector."
