I neither believe nor disbelieve in anything. That which can be imagined is as much an approximation to truth as that which can be proved by mathematics. One cannot always approach truth through reason; it confines us to a geometric cast of thought that calls for logic and credibility. There are things beyond reason.

My faith is in the unknown, in all that we do not understand by reason; I believe that what is beyond our comprehension is a simple fact in other dimensions, and that in the realm of the unknown there is an infinite power for good.

— Charlie Chaplin, My Autobiography

The Principles of Nan Lao Shu (hard to grow old):

The union of the Absolute Self with the Cosmos. No goal, no desire for profit. Not wanting anything for yourself. The true Zazen. Practice Zazen only for Zazen. No object. No subject.

When you are Mushotoku, even if you lose you are always free, always happy.

The Truth-force. The force that is generated through adherence to the truth.

A way of life based on love and compassion.

The tactics of Gandhi. The wisdom of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To say of what is, that it is, or of what is not, that it is not, is true.”
