“Every one of us is a mystic. We may or may not realize it, we may not even like it. But whether we know it or not, whether we accept it or not, mystical experience is always there, inviting us on a journey of ultimate discovery. We have been given the gift of life in this perplexing world to become who we ultimately are: creatures of boundless love, caring, compassion, and wisdom. Existence is a summons to the eternal journey of the sage – the sage we all are, if only we could see.”
Brother Wayne Teasdale, The Mystic Heart
Pointers to Presence
‘And what is mind
And how is it recognized?
If I clearly draw In sumi ink,
the sound Of breezes drifting
Is all that is seen.’
Ikkyu Sojun (1394-1481)
