disciples should be detached.

We should practice compassion and generosity

without regard to appearances, without regard to form,

without regard to sound, smell, taste, touch, or any quality of any kind.

This is how we should practice compassion and generosity.


Practicing compassion and generosity without attachment

is the way to reaching the Highest Perfect Wisdom,

it is the way to becoming a living Buddha.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Diamond Sutra


The wise reject what they think

The foolish reject what they see,
not what they think.
The wise reject what they think,
not what they see.

If, to his detriment,

the fool grows in cleverness,

he only destroys his own mind,

and his fate is worse than before.

Just as the honey is not sweetness, The words of Wu Hsin are not The truth

When I am mindful and present to the world in its past, present, and future moments the text I live comes to life with new meaning:


Just as the honey is not sweetness,

The words of Wu Hsin are not

The truth.

However, time spent with these words is like

The aftermath of rain.

In due course, a sprouting of

Understanding will occur and

Will bear fruit at a pace

Outside of one’s control.
