I have been considering the concept of authenticity and naturalness recently, I read this by Lin Chi and think how removed from how we are expected to be it is. All these other demands and needs swirling around. The photos are from Fuerteventura, taken with my little Sony so less amenable to the post-prod pounding I usually give a pic:
When it’s time to get dressed, put on your clothes.
When you must walk, then walk.
When you must sit, then sit.
Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life,
unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood.
When you’re tired, lie down.
The fool will laugh at you
but the wise man will understand.
