Let us be respectfully reminded:


Life and death are of supreme importance.
Time swiftly passes by, and with it,
our only chance.
Each of us must aspire to awaken.
Be aware.
Do not squander our life.
Charlotte Joko Beck


The whole universe


shatters into a hundred pieces.
In the great death
there is no heaven, no earth.

Once body and mind have turned over
there is only this to say:

Past mind cannot be grasped,
present mind cannot be grasped,
future mind cannot be grasped.
- Zen Master Dogen Zenji, 1200 - 1253
Enlightenment Unfolds, Edited by Kazuaki Tanahashi, p. 206
