how can you help? (681)

a new student asked the sage, “how can i help?”

“you can learn. you can dance. you can sing. you can study the kōans. you can share them with your friends. you can take three breaths. you can tell the truth. you can help others. you can help yourself. you can listen to your dreams, and throw a jubilee, or you can go where you’re needed, and take a walk. you can ask around. but whatever you do, don’t crush sunflowers.”

always ask around.
