Excerpt: I'd like to emphasize today the value of insight and different ways it emerges in Zen training. The koan tradition is a tradition of insight. I don't know about you, but that is what attracted me to the training in the first place. Handed down from the beginning there was this great way of seeing that frees us. Our lives are impermanent. Everything we hold onto is always being snatched away. You may notice that there is something you really want and you struggle to get it, and then you get it. A good analogue for some people is something like a new car or a new house. You struggle and struggle to get it. People plan and plot and decide which car to buy and then they buy their new car and it's just another new car. Just another thing in your life. There it is. Impermanent. Another piece of metal. We all know that experience in many ways. Unless we make them so, our lives do not flower. Unless we fully experience them, our lives are just pieces of metal.
