Buddhadharma : Spring 2018
SHINSHU ROBERTS 63 A dharma position is a moment, thing, or event of being–time that is also definable as transitive and impermanent. A person is a dharma position. Since nothing ever stays the same and all things are in flux due to their interactive, interpenetrating nature, it would be folly to say that a dharma position or a moment of being–time begins here and ends there. Dharma positions are not finite in this sense, nor are they sequential way stations along a continuum of past, present, and future. Although Dogen does not deny the con ventional, everyday sense of time as a horizontal line of sequential events that we experience as past, present, and future, in Uji Dogen is concerned with the nondual nature of time and being as expressed in the presencing moment. From the point of view of practice, a lin ear view of time can impede realization. A dharma position has a past, present, and future, but it is freed from being defined by that past, present, or future. Each dharma position is particular and independent. We are aware of past experi ence and future desires when actualizing our enlightened mind, but such ideas do not obstruct our ability to respond fully to the totality of each situation as it is. This nonobstructive awareness is important because the independent nature of a dharma position allows us to choose how we will respond to them.
