in quiet simplicity


 

Your 

spiritual light 

can be compressed into 

pinpoint, or it can flood and

wash the known and unknown universe.

The principal task of a master is to respect 

the oneness of her spiritual light with

all spiritual light and to care for

 it accordingly.

 

Where is 

the best place to do this? 

In quiet simplicity.

the perfection of existence

dick van duijn

 

By seeing

all the way through

things we are able to perceive

the perfection of existence. The

foreground of mind is noisy chatter,

but by simply watching that with

discipline and perseverance, we

see it quiet. In its place arises

a vast, silent, illuminated

emptiness.

 

So

also with life.

The foreground is rife

with suffering and difficulty,

but by doing non-doing and

quietly observing, we

become aware of

its purity.

keep to the fundamental


 

The essential requirement

in studying zen is concentrated focus.

You don’t engage in any forced actions: you just keep

to the fundamental. Right where you stand, you must pass

through to freedom. You must see the original face and walk through

the scenery of the fundamental ground. You do not change your

ordinary actions, yet outside and inside are One Suchness.

You act according to the natural flow and do not set

up anything as particularly special —

you are no different from

an ordinary person.

 

This is called

being a wayfarer who is free

and at peace, beyond learning, free

from contrived actions. Being in this stage,

you do not reveal any traces of mind — there

is no road for the gods to offer you flowers,

and no way for demons and outsiders

to spy on you. This at last is

simple unadorned

reality.

the correct solution to a difficult situation



tell your reps to defund police

 
Arriving at the correct solution to a difficult situation requires a receptivity to inner truth. Unless we are willing to put aside the strong emotions of our egos and devote ourselves to discovering what is right, there can be no hope of progress at this time. Help only comes when we invite it with a sincere and innocent attitude.

The I Ching teaches a simple but effective method of influencing difficult people and arduous situations. It advises us first to lay aside our prejudices – our feelings of being wounded, angry, or in the right – and second to seek to understand the positions of others and the lesson that the Sage is teaching us with the situation. Even when another is truly out of line, it is only be accepting this and remaining balanced that you make it possible for positive change to occur. Gentleness and understanding create in others an unconscious willingness to be led.

The superior person therefore avoids the use of anger and force in trying times, knowing that they only prolong conflict. It is far wiser to accept that each experience we have is necessary for us to learn something about ourselves and about the higher laws of life. The greatest openings come when we meet difficulty with acceptance, gentleness, and a desire to understand the lesson underneath.
