Senryu #24 Oneness

A key teaching in Zen Buddhism is that of oneness: how we are not separate from the world around us.


I hear rustling reeds
a breath of wind on my face
oneness with the Earth”

The Two Doctors

Why not try and connect with this concept, find a spot outside to sit – in a park, your garden, on the beach ….. Close your eyes and listen to any sounds, feeling the air on your skin and the ground beneath you.

  1. You know what’s funny, and maybe not in a Ha Ha way, but that kind of mindfulness was native to (I’m guessing everywhere but definitely) North-Western Europe prior to the slow rationalisation of post-Reformation Xtianity. So I guess it’s no wonder why Buddhism is so powerful today.

    In modern Asatru we have Utiseta, literally sitting out, which used to be more of a pilgrimage. There’s the Gundestrop Cauldron depicting Herne or Cernunnos doing something like Buddhaseta. Anyways. I’m off my soapbox.
