Sun Roams Bottom Of Sea

Lance Kinseth, Ocean of Zen III: Sun Roams Bottom Of Sea, 2016

The sun roams the bottom of the sea.
Shinkichi Takahashi, from Afterimages

SWIMMING ON THE SURFACE paradoxically touches the bottom.  Each everyday event is rooted in the bottom/vast source--small-as-vast.
          (after Dogen Zenji, Kaiin Zammai, “On the Meditative State That Bears the Seal of the Ocean” )

Which is to say, obversely, vast-as-small, Gutei, Book of Equanimity, case 84 states:
The ocean of ten-thousand worlds is engulfed in a hair-tip.
