Have you ever seen night going? Very few people even become aware of
things which are happening every day. Have you ever seen the evening
coming? The midnight and its song? The sunrise and its beauty?
We are behaving almost like blind people. In such a beautiful world we
are living in small ponds of our own misery. It is familiar, so even
if somebody wants to pull you out, you struggle. You don't want to be
pulled out of your misery, of your suffering. Otherwise there is so
much joy all around, you have just to be aware of it and to become a
participant, not a spectator.
Philosophy is speculation, Zen is participation. Participate in the
night leaving, participate in the evening coming, participate in the
stars and participate in the clouds; make participation your lifestyle
and the whole existence becomes such a joy, such an ecstasy. You could
not have dreamed of a better universe.
