Raven 6: Faith

Practice is faith.

One morning after a round of zazen, Raven asked Brown Bear, "Does faith have a role in practice?"
Brown Bear said, "Great faith."
Raven asked, "How should I direct it?"
Brown Bear said, "One, two, three."
Faith: No having or lacking.
Only doing or failing to
commit to the fullness of (your) being, with
heart and mind open to
the unknown, to
hints of new meaning.
Case by Robert Aitken; introduction and verse by Meredith Garmon
