Prayer 389

The prayer series

Jesus,

Meditation on the Bible and koans on Zen have a same thing.

Meditation on the Bible is to think about your words.
Koans on Zen is to think about Zen teachers’questions.

Both have a same thing.
Both are to stop mind-wandering.
And this is the essential part of both.

This is the way that students become quiet.

Students,
in thinking,
will naturally find every way to concentrate the mind,
stopping the mind from wandering.

The mind therefore will gradually become serene,
hearing the sound of rain dropping,
seeing the smile of flowers,
smelling the sweetness of the wind,
tasting the love in a rice bowl,
feeling the tears of people…

Until one day,
the mind is so quiet that nothing can disturb the mind.

Until one day,
the mind is to be one with you.

Quietness.
Being one with you.
Fruits of meditation on the Bible and koans on Zen.

Amen.

PTH
