Dear Global Sangha,
Lately I have heard many people saying they can’t wait for the year 2020 to be over. Thinking that the year 2020 ever started, let alone that it will also have an ending, is an illusion. Things don’t appear and disappear in a linear manner, even though our delusional mind thinks it works this way. So how does it work? Where and when did all of the phenomena that we call life start? When and where will it eventually stop?
The important matter is learning to ONLY DON’T KNOW and learning to find our Bodhisattva Path in all of this. We cannot comprehend anything if we think of it as making sense or having a pattern, but if we keep learning to enter each moment with wide open DON’T KNOW, then the path will always be clear. It’s the path, not the time or place that matters.
What is your path? Keep your Great Doubt, your Great Question alive and well, return continuously to DON’T KNOW, and then 2021 will welcome you with open arms.
Yours in the dharma,
Zen Master Soeng Hyang (Bobby Rhodes)
