Audio Archive: Still Reflecting & Illuminating with David Weinstein & Group
Koan: Someone was asked, “If a bronze mirror is melted down and cast into an image, where does the reflection and illumination go?”
The response was, “Your face when you were a child and hadn’t yet left home – where has it gone?”
The questioner paused and asked, “After the image is completed, why doesn’t it reflect and illuminate anymore?”
The reply was, “Although it doesn’t appear to reflect and illuminate, it is not deceiving you.”
This koan about the brass mirror is the koan that spoke to me after the last PZI board meeting. During that meeting, looking ahead at an indeterminate period of time of paying rent for our location in Rockridge, while not being able to use it, nor collect any rent from our subletters, led to the decision to let go of our Rockridge location, effective June 1.
