Zen Mind, No Mind
Here there is no idea of time or space. Time and space are one.
Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind
For someone who actually appreciates our life, they are the same. It may have been much better to have gone to some other place for lunch. This place is not so good. Or you may say. So there is no choice for you. When you separate the idea of time and space, you feel as if you have some choice, but actually, you have to do something, or you have to do not-doing. Not-to-do something is doing something.
Good and bad are only in your mind. So in the realm of pure religion there is no confusion of time and space, or good or bad. All that we should do is just do something as it comes. Do something! Whatever it is, we should do it, even if it is not-doing something. We should live in this moment.
So when we sit we concentrate on our breathing, and we become a swinging door, and we do something we should do, something we must do. This is Zen practice. In this practice there is no confusion.
If you establish this kind of life you have no confusion whatsoever. The white cloud is the son of the blue mountain. All day long they depend on each other, without being dependent on each other.

The white cloud is always the white cloud. The blue mountain is always the blue mountain. There may be many things like the white cloud and blue mountain: man and woman, teacher and disciple. They depend on each other. But the white cloud should not be bothered by the blue mountain.

The blue mountain should not he bothered by the white cloud. They are quite independent, but yet dependent. This is how we live, and how we practice zazen. When we become truly ourselves, we just become a swinging door, and we are purely independent of, and at the same time, dependent upon everything.
The Original No-Mind--Diana Zen
Without air, we cannot breathe. Each one of us is in the midst of myriads of worlds. We exist for the sake of ourselves. If you cannot be satisfied with the state of mind you have in zazen, it means your mind is still wandering about.
Our body and mind should not be wobbling or wandering about. In this posture there is no need to talk about the right state of mind.
