Weekly Zen Moment

Everything is burning. The eye is burning and visible sights are burning. The ears and the sounds they hear are burning, the nose, the tongue, the body, the mind. With what fires are they burning? With fires of greed, of hate, of ignorance, burning with anxiety, jealousy, loss, decay, and grief. Considering this suffering, a follower of the way becomes weary of the fires, weary of greed and hate that fuel the grasping at sights, sounds, smells, tastes, body or mind. Being weary, one divests oneself of this grasping and by the absence of this grasping one becomes free.
