09.   Cannot Get Wet; Cannot Get Dry                18-FEB-15

It is about the stone in the sea of Ise.  One side of the stone it is written, cannot get wet; on the other side, cannot get dry.  AMA SAMY explains it in an entirely different perspective - the perspective of the Heart.  Your heart cannot get wet; it is boundlessly open.  And it cannot get dry; it is all the time in contact with the world.
