heaven’s secret is motherly love

brian browne walker blog 4 dec 2016 motherly love
 

Everyone

under heaven says that

my Tao is great, but inconceivable. 

It is its very greatness that makes it inconceivable! 

If it could be conceived of, how small

it would be! 

 

I have three

treasures to hold and protect: 

The first is motherly love. The second

is economy. The third is daring

not to be first in the

world. 

 

With motherly

love one can be courageous. 

With economy one can be expansive. 

With humility one

can lead. 

 

To be

courageous without motherly love, 

To be expansive without practicing economy, 

To go to the front without humility — 

this is courting death. 

 

Venture with

love and you win the

battle. Defend with love and you are

invulnerable. Heaven’s secret is

motherly love.

be still & the universe comes to you


 

Die 

the great death,

and in the cool ashes of

the funeral pyre you

will meet what

never

dies.

 

How is

this accomplished?

By letting go of thoughts,

sacrificing all sentiment,

abandoning emotion,

ignoring the

senses.

 

Solitary,

transcendent, unseeking,

absorbed in stillness and doing

not-doing, you will find that

the universe comes

to you.

do you imagine the universe is agitated?

 

Do you

imagine the universe

is agitated? Go into the desert

at night and look out at the stars. 

This practice should answer

the question. 

 

The superior

person settles her mind as 

the universe settles the stars in the

sky. By connecting her mind with the 

subtle origin, she calms it. Once

calmed, it naturally expands,

and ultimately her mind

becomes as vast and

immeasurable as

the night

sky.

who is the buddha now?

Want

to study with

an enlightened teacher? 

Just stop giving rise to thoughts

and divisions and distinctions. When

self and other, good and bad, right

and wrong are replaced with

emptiness, you are your

own master.
