When we are alone on a starlit night, when by
chance we see the migrating birds in autumn descending on a grove of junipers
to rest and eat; when we see children in a moment when they are really
children, when we know love in our own hearts; or when, like the Japanese poet,
Basho, we hear an old frog land in a quiet pond with a solitary splash – at
such times the awakening, the turning inside out of all values, the
“newness,” the emptiness and the purity of vision that make
themselves evident, all these provide a glimpse of the cosmic dance.
