Not-One, Not-two

On Starting A Sesshin - Zen "Retreat"

All harmful actions ever committed by me,
all harmful actions ever committed to me,
on account of beginingless greed, anger and ignorance,
born of body, mouth and thought,
now I atone for them all.
(now I am at-one with them all.)

"Love turns one person into two and two into one."

"Forgetting self, awakening by the myriad phenomena."
