All worries and troubles
have gone from my breast,
and I play joyfully
far from the world.
For a person of Zen,
no limits exist.
The blue sky must feel
ashamed to be so small. Soseki


Only a man of Zen, only a man of enlightenment can say that.

The blue sky must feel
ashamed to be so small.

Your consciousness becomes so vast, and in that vastness, in that oceanic-ness, who cares about trivia, whether your tie is tied rightly or wrongly? Who cares about small things?

And all our worries are about small things. You have never worried about anything great. Just look back and you will not find a single thing about which you can say, “It was great that I worried about it” — just very small things.
