In the practice of compassion and generosity
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 foolish reject what they see,
not what they think.
The wise reject what they think,
not what they see.~Huang Po

If, to his detriment,
the fool grows in cleverness,
he only destroys his own mind,
and his fate is worse than before.

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
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.
