Wisdom

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.

Tao & Zen


Truth is found in life and not merely in conceptual knowledge

 “Do not think that the knowledge you presently possess is changeless, absolute truth. Avoid being narrow-minded and bound to present views. Learn and practice non-attachment from your views in order to be open to receive other’s viewpoints. Truth is found in life and not merely in conceptual knowledge. Be ready to learn throughout your entire life and to observe reality in yourself and in the world at all times.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Psst, want some wisdom?

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.
