From Eihei Kōroku (永平広録), the extensive record from 1236-1252, by Dōgen Zenji 

” [32]

Life has no whence; it is carrying forth, and carrying forth again. Death had 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.

[35]

Cease and desist, and you are like an ocean taking in a hundred rivers. When you get here, there is no grasping or rejection.

Let go, and you are like a great tide riding on a high wind.”
