BOUNDLESS INTIMACY: The Eye And Treasury Of Core-Self
by Andrew Shugyo Daijo Bonnici, Ph.D.
Excerpt from Chapter 1 – “Abiding In Core-Self – Extending Ki In Zazen-Only”:
In our Way, we embody shikantaza by living from the still vibrancy of core-Self while being somatically mindful of the great functioning of Ki in our everyday life. This somatic mindfulness of Ki is viscerally transmitted in our daily embodiment of core-Self inside of zazen-only. It is in zazen-only that core-Self viscerally comprehends the vital functioning of Ki in this Only Moment Body. To viscerally comprehend the vital functioning of Ki through your core-Self in zazen-only is to somatically realize how to generate Ki in your hara, how to viscerally contain Ki in your Kikai, and how to viscerally extend a sensory field of Ki energy into your immediate surroundings.
