don’t linger with what is trivial and shallow


 

Deluded

people fill the world.

If you’re determined to join

the buddhas instead, then

don’t linger with what

is trivial and

shallow.

 

Annihilate ignorance.

Rescue the suffering.

Take up the responsibility

for eliminating all

that obstructs

the Way.

mind which neither grasps nor rejects


 

Buddha’s

teaching cannot be

attained by having ideas

or not having ideas. Only when

the mind of pure practice coincides

with the way will body and mind be calm.

If body and mind are not yet calm, they

will not be at ease. When body and

mind are not at ease, thorns

grow on the path of

realization.

 

So that

pure practice and

the way coincide, how should

we proceed? Proceed with the mind which

neither grasps nor rejects, the mind unconcerned

with name or gain. Do not practice buddha-dharma with the

thought that it is to benefit others…Do not practice buddha-dharma

for your own sake. Do not practice buddha-dharma for name and

gain. Do not practice buddha-dharma to attain blissful reward.

Do not practice buddha-dharma to attain miraculous

effects. Practice buddha-dharma solely for

the sake of buddha-dharma.

This is the way.

illuminate your own buddha nature from within


 

There is no

difference between your

body and the body of the buddha.

If ignorance exists, seeds

of realization are

sown in it.

 

Seeing

yourself in the master and

the master in yourself, you sense reality.

Understanding that all worldly phenomena

and the one reality are interwoven

and inseparable, you begin to

experience peace and

comfort.

 

Carrying on,

continuing with concentration,

you illuminate your own buddha nature

from within, and then, seeing that nothing

is apart from it, become free

and peaceful in all

you do.

tao te ching ☯️ chapter one

eddie o’bryan

 

Tao is beyond words 

and beyond understanding. 

Words may be used to speak of

it, but they cannot

contain it. 

 

Tao existed before

words and names, before heaven and earth,

before the ten thousand things. It is the unlimited

father and mother of all limited things. Therefore, to see

beyond all boundaries to the subtle heart of things, 

dispense with names, with concepts,

with expectations and ambitions

and differences. 

 

Tao and its many manifestations

arise from the same source: subtle wonder

within mysterious darkness. This

is the beginning of all

understanding. 

 

from The Tao te Ching of Lao Tzu,

Chapter 1

 

🦋

 

This reality

cannot be covered by the skies

or held up by the earth. Space cannot contain it.

It abides within all sentient beings and is the support

on which all of them rest. It has always been

clean and naked. There is nowhere

it does not pervade.
