every breath is interwoven with enlightenment

takeuchi seiho

 

Every breath, 

each movement, all activity 

is completely, inseparably interwoven 

with enlightenment. Complete realization 

is bound into every petty difficulty, and

wholly liberated and illuminated

through quiet awareness 

of that fact.

go slowly

Darkness distorts your light.

Avoid attempting to force a completion.

Go slowly, methodically, and

with quiet balance.

accept three precepts

Even if

you know how to recite

the texts, you still have to discern reality

from artificiality. Why? Sound and form dim the mind,

falsehoods fool the ears; personality and ego become second

nature, the disease of self-affirmation is deep-seated.

When the mind is separated from the

Way,  the principle is hard to

comprehend.

 

If you wish

to return to the supreme

Way, have deep faith and first accept

three precepts. If you practice in accord with

these three precepts consistently from

beginning to end, then you will

attain the true Way. The

three precepts

are:

 

simplifying involvements 

not craving anything 

quieting the mind

 

…A scripture says,

“If people can empty their minds

and not contrive anything, it is not that

they want the Way, but the Way

spontaneously reverts

to them.”

 

Treatise on Sitting Forgetting

 

the potential for union

 

The potential for

an influential union exists.

Maintain clarity and balance and act

energetically when the way opens.

When it closes, withdraw

without resistance.

the universe is already a harmonious oneness

 

Forget

about understanding and 

harmonizing and making all things one. 

The universe is already a harmonious 

oneness; just realize

that. 

 

If you 

scramble about in

search of inner peace, 

you will lose your 

inner peace.
