Any kind of speech coming from the Zen master doesn’t matter. You must digest the Zen master’s speech and from moment to moment make it correct. Make it YOURS. That is wisdom. But it is very important that you not let yourself become attached to any Zen master’s speech.
– Seung Sahn
You are water (which represents love). You can remind yourself again and again that you are an Ocean of love or else keep getting scared/attached to creatures in the sea (anger, greed, jealousy etc etc). – WB
If you use your mind to study reality, you won’t understand either your mind or reality. If you study reality without using your mind, you’ll understand both.
Beyond an event is knowledge, Beyond an object is infinity, Beyond a person is love…
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
As long as you look for a Buddha somewhere else, you’ll never see that your own mind is the Buddha.
You will always find an answer in the sound of water.
