On another occasion, Zuigan asked Ganto, "What
is the Eternal and Fundamental Principle of
Things?"

Ganto replied, "Movement."

Zuigan asked, "What is this movement?"

Ganto said, "When you see things move, can't you
see this Eternal and Fundamental Principle of
Things?"

Zuigan was lost in thought, and Ganto said, "If you
agree to this, you are still in the dust of this world;
if you disagree, you will be always sunk in life and
death."


What a great insight, that even agreement or
disagreement are not allowed. You are to grow
beyond all dualities, it does not matter what the
duality is. Because every duality means choosing
one against the other, and growth stops.

Life is a choicelessness. Never choose. Just be,
and allow your being to grow to unknown skies, to
unknown spaces. And you will find your
buddhahood bringing more and more flowers,
showering more and more blessings, bringing
greater and greater ecstasies. And there is no end
to it...
