Nov/Dec '19 Newsletter

"On cold winter mornings, I sometimes find it hard to light a candle. I must slowly melt the wax surrounding the wick. The lit candle will then burn brightly and continue to burn, melting with the heat of its own light. 

And so it is with human beings. At first, we must have a good teacher to guide us and 'light us', but after that, by 'burning ourselves' with our own efforts, we emit light and warmth around us. However earnestly someone else urges us to burn, unless we burn ourselves, nothing will be accomplished."
~ Shundo Aoyama, Zen Seeds
