the taming power of the great

icebergkayak

 

Be

the same

all the way through: 

quiet, still, at home. In the

absence of mind, all phenomena 

can be seen for what they 

are: empty. This is 

freedom.

Remind

yourself every morning,

every morning, every morning:

“I’m going to do something. I’ve made a

commitment.” Not for yourself,  but

beyond yourself. You belong to

the collective. Don’t go

wandering off or you

will perish.

they come and go in birth and death

jesus
 

Great bodhisattvas

arrive at consummate skill in means;

they are always concerned with the welfare of all

sentient beings, they do not reject the realm of common

ignorance, do not seek individual escape, do not cling to their own

happiness. They only strive to edify and liberate others; they are

able to enter and exit meditations and liberations, and have

attained mastery of all concentrations. They come

and go in birth and death as though

roaming through a park,

never getting sick

of it.

They

may live in the palace

of demons or may be celestial beings —

they manifest their bodies in all realms of life.

They may become mendicants in non-buddhist groups,

yet they always avoid false views…They may appear as beautiful

women, intelligent and talented, foremost in the world…Though they

show attainment  of true enlightenment moment to moment, still

they do not stop the practice of bodhisattvas. This is their

fourth  unique quality, the ultimate consummation

of skill in means without relying

on the teaching of

another.

 

Avatamsaka Sutra

 

don’t seek

horse nose
 

Don’t

seek a Buddha,

don’t seek a teaching,

don’t seek a community.

Don’t seek virtue, knowledge,

intellectual understanding, and

so on. When feelings of defilement

and purity are ended, still don’t hold

to this non-seeking and consider it right.

Don’t dwell at the point of ending, and

don’t long for heavens or fear hells.

When you are unhindered by

bondage or freedom, then

this is called liberation

of mind and body in

all places.
