Gary Snyder wrote: "(Dogen's) mountains and streams are the processes of this earth, all of existence, process, essence, action, absence; they roll being and nonbeing together . . .For those who would see directly into essential nature . . . (must see) what is before our eyes: plain thusness . . . No hierarcy, no equality. No occult and exoteric . . . No wild and tame, no bound or free, no natural or artificial. Each totally its own frail self. Even though connected all which ways; even because connected all which ways.
This, thusness, is the nature of the nature of nature. The wild in the wild."
(Dogen was a Zen master who wrote the "Mountains and Waters Sutra".)
