1885-1973

I had this quote written on a piece of paper and taped to my closet door through college, through two dorm rooms and a wonderful apartment on Court Street in Athens, Ohio: “The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there.”

It’s from Yasutani Roshi, Japanese Zen master and the founder of the Sanbo Kyodan.

As time buzzes onward, I think about this idea more often.
