from “Eihei Koroku (Universal Book of Eternal Peace) by Zen Master Eihei Dogen (1200-1253), trans. Thomas Cleary
Life has no whence; it is carrying forth, and carrying forth again. Death has no whither; it is carrying away, and carrying away again.
Ultimately how is it?
If the mind does not differ, myriad things are one suchness.
