Grace is within you;
Grace is the Self.
Grace is not something
To be acquired from others.
If it external, it is useless.
All that is necessary
Is to know its existence in you.
You are never out of its operation.
Walking along a little path,
I find a footprint on the moss,
A white cloud low on the quiet lake,
Grasses that sweeten an open door,
A pine greener with the rain,
A brook tumbling from a mountain source,
And, mingling with Truth among flowers,

Standing alone beneath a solitary pine,
Quickly the time passes.
Overhead the endless sky
Who can I call to join me on this path?
In the still night by the vacant window,
Wrapped in monk’s robe
I sit in meditation,
Navel and nostrils lined up straight,
Ears paired to the slope of shoulders.
The moon comes up;
But drops go on dripping.
The mood of this moment;
