"Woodcutter" "Takuan (1573-1645)

A woodcutter was busily engaged in cutting down trees in the remote mountains. An animal called “satori” appeared. It was a very strange-looking creature, not usually found in the villages. The woodcutter wanted to catch it alive. The animal read his mind: “You want to catch me alive, do you not?” Completely taken aback, the woodcutter did not know what to say, whereupon the animal remarked, “You are evidently astonished at my telepathic faculty.” Even more surprised, the woodcutter then conceived the idea of striking it with one blow of his ax, when the satori exclaimed, “Now you want to kill me.” The woodcutter felt entirely disconcerted, and fully realizing his inability to do anything with this mysterious animal, he thought of resuming his business. The satori was not charitably disposed for he pursued him, saying, “So at last you have abandoned me.” The woodcutter did not know what to do with this animal or with himself. Altogether resigned, he took up his ax and, paying no attention whatever to the presence of the animal, vigorously and singlemindedly resumed cutting trees. While so engaged, the head of the ax flew off its handle, and struck the animal dead. The satori, with all its mind-reading sagacity, had failed to read the mind of “no-mind-ness." In the song it says:

It is the very mind itself

That leads the mind astray;

Of the mind,

Do not be mindless." Collaboration with @jaredcortlandart and @ryanfitt
