“A person getting enlightened is like the moon reflecting in the water.

The moon does not get wet, the water is not disturbed.

Though it is a great expanse of light, it reflects in a little bit of water;

the whole moon and the whole sky reflect even in the dew on the grass;

they reflect even in a single drop of water.

Enlightenment not disturbing the person is like the moon not piercing the water.

A person not obstructing enlightenment is like the dewdrop not obstructing the heavens.”

-Dogen, "Flowers Fall" (Tarcher/Putnam)
