Since, as Dogen says, practice and enlightenment are one and the same, I thought it was high time I did something about the fact that my makeshift zafu (a pile of afghans) was causing my legs to fall asleep every time I sat. It was clear that the problem could be traced to what I was sitting on.
Time to make the zafu!
I purchased some kapok. While it was making its way to Newfoundland, I saw some very cute crocheted cushions on etsy that looked suspiciously like zafus.
So that's what I did.
If you stare at this photo long enough, Dogen appears and shakes his fist at you.
No, no, keep looking! Don't look away. Ach, you just missed it. Keep looking.
