John Daido Loori - Water of the Ten Directions

Water of Ten Directions


Painter, brush, canvas, image, subject–they are not many.

The painter is the brush, the image is the painter, the subject is the object, the canvas is the paint.

Those things only separate themselves when we separate them by the way we use our mind.
