Your Preciousness Cannot Be Lost

You should understand that no thing ever falls short of its own completeness.

John Daido Loori, from “Commentary” [on Panshan’s 
awakening], in Kazuaki Tanahashi and John Daido Loori, 
Translators. The True Dharma Eye: Zen Master Dogen’s 
Three Hundred Koans, p.29


Everything has one thing.  This one thing swallowed heaven, earth, and everything.  
If you want to find it, it is already far away. 

Yong Song, from “”214. What Is One Thing?,” in 
Seung Sahn, The Whole World Is A Single Flower, p.134
