Sketchbook notes from the drifting spaces

Mountain Still Still – Kusen collaboration with John Fraser

Mountian Still Still (www.blairthomson.com)

John’s Kusen

We are told that we should sit like a mountain. Zazen is described as the still-still state, the mountain – still state.

The mountain is the ground made visible. Just because the mountain endures and accepts everything, we cannot say it has no feeling. Because it is the ground made visible, it is all feeling.

Zazen is the great matter made visible.
