Raining Zen

“We should work like the rain. The rain just falls. It doesn’t ask, am I making a nice sound down below? Or, will the plants be glad to see me? Will they be grateful? The rain just falls, one raindrop after another. Millions and billions of raindrops, only falling. This is the open secret of Zen.”

~ Jakusho Kwong, No Beginning, No End: The Intimate Heart of Zen
