True Dharma Eye, Case 241: Xuansha "Hears the Sound of a Swallow"
What is the meaning of a bird's song? How do we understand the love we feel for a child? Our ideas about the meaning of things-our constant craving to finally know and understand something-can get in the way of experiencing the joy and immediacy of life. Every moment presents us the opportunity to see with fresh eyes,
to appreciate what cannot be explained, to be awake
and alive to our hearts.
