I had a problematic day. My voice started to act up (some pain in the throat) when singing and it really got me into a frenzy. I could almost not calm down. I imagined all sorts of worst case scenarios. So this was (or still is) on one end.
And on the other end, I think I have realized today that everything has Buddha nature.
It couldn't be more weird. Some kind of awakening paired with fears about losing my ability to sing 🤷‍♂️ 🤨

What is also weird is that there's noone I know who understands this experience. I sort of want to tell everyone of this discovery but I know I'm kind of alone with it right now. At least I think do understand these now:

Huichao asks the teacher, what is the Buddha?” Fayan said, “You are Huichao.”

Ce asked, “What is the Buddha?” Fayan said, “The fire god comes looking for fire.”

A monk asked Dongshan, “What is the Buddha?” Dongshan said, “Three pounds of flax.”
