Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
SO I AM HELPING
P'ang Yun (740-808) was a well known Chinese Zen Layman. He was once selling bamboo baskets. Coming down off the a bridge, he stumbled and fell. When Ling-chao saw this she ran to her father's side and threw herself down. " What are you doing!" cried the Layman. "I saw Papa fall to the ground, so I am helping," replied Ling-chao. "Luckily no one was looking," remarked the Layman.
