Intro to Zen Mind

Myriad things

bud-bird

That you carry yourself forward and experience the myriad things is delusion.

That the myriad things come forward and experience themselves is awakening.

Those who know do not talk

Photo: Those who know do not talk. Those who talk do not know ~ Lao Tzu ~ Tao Te Ching ~ The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of Lao Tzu's dictum:  "Those who know do not talk. Those who talk do not know." When the master entered, they asked him what the words meant. Said the master, "Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?" All of them indicated that they knew. Then he said, "put it into words." All of them were silent.  ~ Anthony de Mello ~

 

~ Lao Tzu ~ Tao Te Ching ~

The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of Lao Tzu’s dictum:
“Those who know do not talk. Those who talk do not know.”
When the master entered, they asked him what the words meant.
Said the master, “Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?”
All of them indicated that they knew.
Then he said, “put it into words.”
All of them were silent.

Your true home

“Your true home is in the here and the now. It is not limited by time, space, nationality, or race. Your true home is not an abstract idea. It is something you can touch and live in every moment..”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~

The art of peace is not easy

 “The art of peace is not easy. It is a fight to the finish…” –
Morihei Ueshiba

If you want serenity


If you want wisdom, empty your heart of ignorance. If you want contentment, empty your heart of greed. If you want serenity, empty your heart of ill will.
~Buddha

Opening the Hand of Thought

 
” At times, we plunge our heads too far into memories and fantasies, or myths and history, or religious dogma and formalized -isms.
When we admire these, believe in them blindly, and become frenzied and fanatical, we activate this fixed and conceptual existence.
We totally confuse this kind of conceptual existence with the raw life-experience of the present and end up being dragged around by it.
We do things that only stifle raw life. This is happening all the time…..We have to conclude that the important thing is to really practice, aiming at living out the reality of life. ”
Opening the Hand of Thought _
