This is a poem written by Jojo, January 11, 2019. She came and practiced with us within a week and she had a lot happiness during the time in Blue Cliff Monastery.
When I open my eyes
I see the sky and these are
Beautiful white clouds
How wonderful that we live
On this planet, this tiny particle
In the vast universe.
When I look at you, I see All.
There is no you and there is no I.
How wonderful it is that
We exist as due sharing the here and now.
When I open my eyes, I see nature.
Trees and flowers and rivers and creeks.
How wonderful it is to live together
Surrounded by Buddha everywhere.
