Humans can fall, but humans can achieve enlightenment too.
Humans exist in between.
Humans live between hell and Buddha,
and between life and death.
That is why we call us human*.
*Japanese characters for human, “人間” means “Men in between.”
A nice “poem” I found in Kongoji, Japan.
It is a really nice way of seeing our lives.
How we have limited time here, our lives depend on our choices, and we are social beings…
