you are the buddha now


 

Do you find 

your spiritual practice 

pitiful and wanting? If buddha 

were before you, would you 

be ashamed, afraid, 

shy, small?

 

Wake up! 

The truth too large 

for words is that the buddha 

is closer to you than that: 

you are the buddha

now. 

 

This entire world 

is just for you. All the teaching in 

this world is only for you. Accept this without 

further thought of whether you are good 

or bad and be responsible to it. 

This is the spirit you must 

bring to everything that

you do. Be the

buddha

now.

the tao of jesus


 

There

are three miracles of our

Brother Jesus not yet recorded in the Book:

the first that he was a man like you and me; the second that

he had a sense of humor; and the third that he

knew he was a conqueror though

conquered.

 

Kahlil Gibran

 


 

Why do

people hate Jesus,

or at least prefer the ethereal dead

version known as Christ? Because Jesus made

outrageous demands: Love your enemy,

renounce material possessions,

give all you have to

the poor.

 

Barbara Ehrenreich

 


 

A

conservative is

someone who admires radicals

centuries after they’re

dead.

 

Leo Rosten

 

the way to enlightenment is through emptiness

gregory colbert

 

The way

to enlightenment

is through emptiness.

 

Quiet the senses,

forget the body, abandon

concepts and control and contention.

Transform the mind into a pile of cool

ashes, and then do non-doing until

stillness permeates inside

and out.

 

In this

way you can be

illuminated by the clarity

and silence of the

Oneness.

what it means to be a great saint

herself

 

Once you

merge your tracks

into the stream of zen,

you spend your days silencing

your mind and studying with your

whole being. You realize that this Great Cause

is not obtained from anyone else but is just a matter

of taking up the task boldly and strongly, and making constant

progress. Day by day you shed your delusions, and day by day you

enhance your clarity of mind. Your potential for enlightened perception

is like fine gold that is to be refined hundreds and thousands of times.

What is essential for getting out of the dusts, what is basic for

helping living creatures, is that you must penetrate

through freely in all directions and arrive at

peace and security free from doubt and

attain the stage of great

potential and great

function.

 

This work

is located precisely in

your own inner actions. It is just

a matter of being in the midst of the interplay

of the myriad causal conditions every day, in the confusion

of the red dusts, amid favorable and adverse circumstances and

gain and loss, appearing and disappearing in their midst,

without being affected and turned around by

them, but on the contrary, being able

to transform them and turn

them around.

 

…When you

go on grinding and polishing

like this for a long time, you are liberated

right in the midst of birth and death, and you look upon

the world’s useless reputation and ruinous projects as mere dust

in the wind, as a dream, as a magical apparition, as an

optical illusion. Set free, you pass through the

world. Isn’t this what it means to be a great

saint who has emerged from

the dusts of sensory

attachments?
