Your buddha nature is like the sun and moon in the sky, like fire in a piece of wood. Everyone has a buddha nature.
What comes from practicing Zen is something you yourself realize. Talking about food will never satisfy your hunger.
If you don’t quit hanging out with those who study words, you’ll be no different from someone who boils water to get ice or who create steam to make snow.
Sometimes the Buddhas teach by speaking and sometimes by not speaking. But the true form of all dharmas isn’t found in what they say, nor is it found in what they don’t say.
