the subtle universe appears


 

Calming

your mind, following

your breath, simplifying your life,

you reduce agitation and worry

with each passing

month.

 


When

genuine stillness

pervades your existence,

the subtle universe appears.

Then you can go anywhere you

like and give yourself

just what you

need.

there are two paths


 

Do you wish

to free yourself of mental

and emotional knots and become one

with the Tao? If so, there are

two paths available

to you. 

 

The first is

the path of acceptance.

Affirm everyone and everything.

Freely extend your goodwill and virtue

in every direction, regardless of circumstances.

Embrace all things as part of the Harmonious

Oneness, and then you will begin

to perceive it. 

 

The second path

is that of denial. Recognize that

everything you see and think is a falsehood,

an illusion, a veil over the truth. Peel all the veils away,

and you will arrive at the Oneness. Though these

paths are entirely different, they will deliver

you to the same place: spontaneous

awareness of the Great

Oneness. 

 

Once you

arrive there, remember:

it isn’t necessary to struggle to

maintain unity with it.

All you have to do is

rest in it.

empty sky

 

Awareness

is inherently pure like

the empty sky. Stress, annoyance,

and anger can temporarily

occupy its space but can

never pollute

it.
 

Haemin Sunim

 

it’s just a ride, and we can change it any time we want


 

The world is

like a ride at an amusement park,

and when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real,

because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up

and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills

and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud.

And it’s fun, for a

while.

 

Some people

have been on the ride

for a long time, and they begin to

question: ‘Is this real? Or is this just a ride?’

And other people have remembered, and they come

back to us and they say ‘Hey! Don’t worry, don’t

be afraid — ever — because this is just a

ride.’ And we kill those

people.

 

…We always kill

those good guys who try and

tell us that — ever notice that? — and we

let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter,

because it’s just a ride, and we can change it any time we want.

It’s only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings

and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and

love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks

on your door, buy bigger guns, close yourself

off. The eyes of love, instead, see all

of us as one.

 

Here’s

what we can do

to change the world, right

now, into a better ride. Take all that money

we spend on weapons and defense each year and, instead,

spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world,

which it would do many times over — not one human being

excluded — and we can explore space together,

both inner and outer, forever.

In peace.
