The meaning of a thing

Not one thing in the universe
has a single inherent meaning.
The meaning of a thing
is in the mind of the perceiver
and not in the object of perception.

All that is necessary to awaken

Just notice the presence of Awareness

“The Truth is not in what is looked at, but in the looking itself. Don’t look for awareness to be some big experience. Just notice the presence of awareness, which is simple and immediate. It is noticing these words right now. Awareness is the invisible light of consciousness that is always present in every moment and in every circumstance. It is the context within which all of the content of experience and perception happens.”

Stay quiet and empty and let life play.

At the heart of life,
there is the ever perfect.
You can’t improve what is already perfect.
You can only discover it.
Just stay quiet and empty.
Let life play.

For one who is free

For one who is free,
this world is neither a blessing
nor a curse, but a reflection
of one’s own mind and its projections.

Searching for the Dharma

Searching for the Dharma

By Hsu Yun
(1839 – 1959)

 

You’ve traveled up ten thousand steps in search of the Dharma.
So many long days in the archives, copying, copying.
The gravity of the Tang and the profundity of the Sung
make heavy baggage.
Here! I’ve picked you a bunch of wildflowers.
Their meaning is the same
but they’re much easier to carry.
