Steps 4 and 5 - - 12 & Zen Reminder

Step 4:  Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.  


Step 5:  Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.


Koan: Give up recollection!

What limit is there to the pure wind circling the earth?   (Hseuh tou, 980-1052)

Once you give up recollecting, what will become of the affairs you busy yourselves with? Here and now the pure wind is circling the earth. 

Throughout heaven and earth, what is there that is limited? She picks up the numberless concerns of all ages and throws them down before

 you. This is not confined to this time. What limit is there? All of you—what limit is there on your part?   (Yuanwu, 1063-1135)
