The outwardly beautiful person has troubles as no matter how free of ego, they will always project the seed of ego into each person they meet.

The smart and reliable person always gets far too much put upon them.

The wise are always being asked questions.

The fool is always at loss.

It takes a certain something to appear average on the outside and exist in deep seated calm.

Dainin Katagiri used to comment on how we must become useless like zazen...it is good for nothing. It took me awhile to 'get it'. Your post reminded me of his comments.

Very nicely put, I find much that is true here :-)

In being there is nothing happening, or so it seems, but somehow everything that needs to be done gets done and all is as it should be . . .
