Eihei Dogen

“Studying the Buddha Way is studying oneself.  Studying oneself is forgetting oneself.  Forgetting oneself is being enlightened by all things.  Being enlightened by all things is causing the body-mind of oneself and the body-mind of others to be shed.  There is ceasing the traces of enlightenment, which causes one to forever leave the traces of enlightenment which is cessation.”
