no one but you is in charge of your realization

horseshoe bend colorado river grand canyon

No teacher 

or master is in possession 

of your enlightenment. Ultimately 

only you can free yourself. Just shed your 

delusions like a sweaty shirt and slip into the 

stream of zen and tao, empty minded, 

quiet hearted, at rest in the midst 

of everything and at peace 

with all that

occurs.

 

Polish

yourself  on your

own over and over until

you disappear, and you’ll wake up 

right where you are. You’ll see straight 

through the snares of the world and

pass freely into complete 

realization.

if you want the fruits of enlightenment…

38_d

If

you wish 

to enjoy the fruits 

of enlightenment, abandon 

regard for the conventional and 

the communal. The Way is a path 

for one. Then it narrows 

until there’s not

even space for

you.

if you perpetuate the tao, it perpetuates you

whales (2)[5]

In the

reconciling of

resentments, ill will often

lingers. What’s the

good in

that?

 

The

person

who is truly good

concerns herself with what she

owes others, never with

what they owe

her.

 

The Tao

of heaven is impartial.

If you perpetuate it,

it perpetuates

you.

caring for trees, earth, sky, we care for ourselves

wei wu wei ching 19 walker brian browne tree

A superior

person cares for the

well-being of all things. She

does this by accepting responsibility

for the energy she manifests,

both actively and in

the subtle

realm.

 

Looking

at a tree, she sees not

an isolated event but root, leaves,

trunk, water, soil and sun: each event

related to the others, and “tree”

arising out of their

relatedness.

 

Looking at

herself or another,

she sees the same thing. Trees

and animals, humans and insects,

flowers and birds: these are active images

of the subtle energies that flow from the

stars throughout the universe. Meeting

and combining with each other

and the elements of the earth,

they give rise to all

living things.

 

The superior

person understands this,

and understands that her own

energies play a part in it. Understanding

these things, she respects the earth

as her mother, the heavens as her

father, and all living things

as her brothers and

sisters.

 

Caring for

them, she knows

that she cares for herself.

Giving to them, she knows

that she gives to herself.

At peace with them,

she is always at

peace with

herself.

agitated effort is not necessary

fisherman

If you

go searching for

the Great Creator, you will

come back empty-handed. The source

of the universe is ultimately unknowable,

a great invisible river flowing

forever through a vast

and fertile

valley. 

 

Silent

and uncreated,

it creates all things.

All things are brought forth

from the subtle realm into the manifest

world by the mystical intercourse of yin and yang.

The dynamic river yang pushes forward, the

still valley yin is receptive, and through

their integration things come into

existence. This is known

as the Great

Tai Chi. 

 

Tai chi

is the integral truth

of the universe. Everything is a tai chi:

your body, the cosmic body, form, appearance, wisdom,

energy, the unions of people, the dispersal of time and places.

Each brings itself into existence through the integration

of yin and yang, maintains itself, and

disperses itself without the

direction of any

creator.

 

Your creation,

your self-transformation, the

accumulation of energy and wisdom,

the decline and cessation of your body:

all these take place by themselves

within the subtle operation

of the universe.

 

Therefore

agitated effort is

not necessary. Just be

aware of the Great

Tai Chi.
