Chapter 3: The Sword and the Lotus
But come back as a buddha, with all the flowers and the fragrances, with all the grace and the beatitude, with all the poetry and all the songs.
Just sit down for a few moments to recollect where you have been, what path you have followed, what has been happening at the center of your being. The center of your being is the very door to existence.
It is not only Yakusan who says, “Isness is my business”; I also say to you, “Isness is also my business.”
Isness simply means to be here and now.
Be here and now, and you are the buddha.
