No Limits Exist

Muso Soseki, a Zen Master (1275-1351) was also a renowned poet. His poem, All Worries and Troubles, is one of my all time favorites.  Here it is:






"All Worries and troubles
have gone from my breast
and I play joyfully
far from the world.

For a person of Zen
no limits exist.
The blue sky must feel
ashamed to be so small."

Cool poem.

Hands palm to palm,
Shinzen

    The idea being that you could use it as the graphic at the top of the blog. I made it fit in with the blue.

    No worries if you don't want to use it of course :)
