"Dorothy realized that what she had been seeking all her life was simply her life itself: the people, the house, the rooms. All were the face of God. If we really saw that, we wouldn't torture ourselves and each other as we do. We're unkind; we're manipulative; we're dishonest. If we saw that this very life we lead is the face of God itself, we would not be able to behave in such ways -- not because of any commandment or prohibition, but just because we see what life is." --Joko BeckSaturday Zen: Sat Sep 22, 10:00 - 11:45am
