What is it in us that abhors and loves things? More often than not, it is simply our confusion about what 'we are' manifesting itself.
We believe that opinions are necessary in order to act. We believe that opinion is action. What form can action to remove the obstructions from rightness take when abhorrence is fully seen to be empty of substance?
Peer deeply into what practises zazen. Examine again the assertions of the Buddhas - what truly remains that could make our hatred and our love real? What truly remains that is real? It is not nothing.
