Fire!

A Quote by Dogen Zenji on dogen, zen, zazen, meditation, buddhism, and fire

Set aside all involvements and let the myriad things rest. Zazen is not thinking of good, not thinking of bad. It is not conscious endeavour. It is not introspection. Do not desire to become a buddha; let sitting or lying down drop away. Be moderate in eating and drinking. Be mindful of the passing of time, and engage yourself in zazen as though you are saving your head from fire.

Dogen Zenji (1200 - 1253)
