"The real way circulates everywhere; how could it require practice or enlightenment? The essential teaching is fully available; how could effort be necessary? Furthermore, the entire mirror is free of dust; why take steps to polish it? Nothing is separate from this very place. Why journey away? And yet, if you miss the mark by even a strand of hair, you are as distant as heaven from earth."
-- Dogen Zenji
