ďAnything can happen in lifeĒ

This isnít some kind of punchline or dilemma as viewed by some people. I can verify this very phrase based on my own experiences. If you look at where I was or what I was actively doing in life a year from today and my transition from a highly stressful and provocative routine to a rather passive routine I was never used to since early 2007.

Sometimes in lust for passion we follow our instincts and enter the territory of unknown Ė risky but rewarding. But passion is not a liquid sealed in airtight container. Itís perishable if not handled with care.

Sounds like some words from some novel, isnít it? Well, sometimes passion can make you so focused that you donít even realize that you have a life ahead of you. This time I mean that social phase of life.You donít get to read books that your friend suggested, you donít get to spend quality time with family (always having other thoughts even when with them), you start dropping interests that was cherished since childhood, no idle sitting time and watching your favorite sport and so on.††

Over the years I wonder why in Sōtō Zen, sentences have this inherent structure: ďSubhuti, the Tathagata says that these particles of dust are not particles of dust, and that is why they are truly particles of dustĒ

I have come across plenty of such sentences having underlying structure of statement-negation-affirmation.However I havenít yet established a valid relevance of this sentence structure to fully describe the philosophy behind the statement of interest. Gotta figure out this mystery.
