The Perfect Way is not difficult
One must only avoid grabbing or rejecting.
When both, love and hate, are absent
everything becomes clear and diaphanous.
Never the less, make the most minimal distinction
and Heaven and Earth become infinitely separated.
If you seek the truth,
do not maintain any opinion in favour or against.
The struggle between what one likes and what one dislikes
is the sickness of the mind.

Body-mind (pt.1)

When Master Nyojo gave the Dharma Transmission to Dogen in the ceremony in his room he had already received an instruction for seven days. His understanding of Zen was complete - but this didn’t mean that Dogen stopped practicing Zazen.
Nyojo said to him: “I have given you the teaching of the pure essence of Zen. Even if you didn’t take notes, you should remember it. I give you the kesa and the bowl - Zen symbols for the essence of Buddha transmitted by Bodhidharma. Today you have understood the deep meaning of this teaching, not with your consciousness and intelligence, but with your body. Only you understand, the others haven’t grasped this essence. I could die right now without regret. Now the spirit of the Transmission has been written intimately, directly, secretly.

In Buddhism, in Zen, “spirit” - shin -, is sometimes translated as “heart”. The Chinese say “spirit-heart”, but really it means “the spirit of Buddha” - Bodai - not of a mythical Buddha, not an image of Buddha, but rather the Buddha which exists in everybody. Buddha means “eternal”.

The nature of Buddha is the cosmic energy present in every life. The spirit of Buddha is present in all places. To become Buddha is to recognise this fact, to notice it. This spirit is not limited to the body of Buddha Shakyamuni; it is the Universal Spirit, the true Universal Body which is also not limited to our own body. The Universal Body is the body of all existences. All the existences which come and go in the Great Ocean, which appear and disappear like the waves: everybody has the Body of Buddha, everybody has the spirit of Buddha even without knowing it, even without recognising it.
