Every step is on the path

Every step is on the path.
— Tao
All conditioned things are impermanent.
Work out your own salvation with deligence.
— Gautama Buddha’s last words
Practice is this life,
and realisation is this life,
and this life is revealed right here and now.
— Maezumi Roshi
Since it is all too clar,
it takes time to grasp it.
— Zen
Things are not what they appear to be.
Nor are they otherwise.
— Surangama Sutra
