It is said that Buddhas and Zen Masters have the amazing power to transcend BIG and small ...
... to make the small TREMENDOUS, and the BIG as tiny as an atom ...
... to know the BIGGEST held easily in the smallest, and to hold the entirety of space and time in a blade of grass.
IT IS TRUE! IT IS TRUE! IT IS TRUE!
Basho haiku'd a tiny jump and a boundless sound ...
The old pond.
A frog jumps in.
William Blake sang ...
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour
A small thing, no big trick for Zen folks!
