JI-JO-IPPEN: Spontaneous Integration

JI naturally, spontaneously
JO become, realize
ICHI one
HEN piece
IPPEN (= ICHI + HEN) one piece

JI-JO-IPPEN spontaneous integration -- Master Dogen's own original secret of sitting-zen. Remember, you heard it here first.

As FM Alexander was fond of saying, “The right thing does itself.”

The difficult thing to learn is how to get out of its way. And the more you care about it, the more difficult it is -- story of my life.

Any questions?
