Prosper or Perish

Good morning!


When we get up early, come here and sit, we can enjoy the abundant beauty of the natural world, and we can create beautiful abundance with it in harmony with all.


In prostration the world prospers; in privatization the world perishes. To prosper or perish depends on our practice – like planting potable plants or poisonous plants.





Dogen’s poem titled prostration illustrates one’s returning and reunifying with the original nature:


No winter-grass being seen,

A white heron in a snowfield

Hides itself in

Its own form.
