Buddhadharma : Summer 2018
DAININ KATAGIRI ROSHI 89 “right acceptance.” It is to accept something, but not by discriminat- ing from a dualistic point of view. It is to accept your life as a whole and keep walking. Whatever happens, you proceed straightforwardly and just go on with your life. So whatever you think, whatever opin- ion you have, let it go and let your true self proceed through itself. This is the real practice of spiritual life. three aspeCts of wisdom Buddhism always emphasizes experiencing the energy of life itself directly, through your skin, muscle, and bone. That is called wisdom. It is the wisdom of emptiness emphasized so much in the Prajna Paramita Sutra. There are three aspects to the wisdom of emptiness: emptiness of the conditioned, emptiness of the unconditioned, and ultimate emptiness. Emptiness of the conditioned is the realization that the human world has no substance of its own. The human world is the world of phenomena: what you can see, hear, smell, taste, touch, and think. That world is produced by many causes and conditions, existing from moment to moment and constantly changing. There is noth- ing that you can pin down as an independent entity because life is impermanent. If you feel pensive or sad from the impermanence of life, you are looking at life as a kind of object that you want to hold on to. The feelings and thoughts you experience as a human being are impor- tant, but they arise from emptiness, the dynamic functioning of your life. So experience emptiness first; then you can think and create ideas based on wisdom. Usually we do the opposite, then we get dragged around by our thoughts and feelings based on ignorance. Don’t get dragged around! All you have to do is just be alive! You are the aliveness of life. When you see your life exactly as it is, there is no way to feel sad because you see that your life is constantly emerging. So just take care of your life. No matter what
