And now, from the Land of Purple Mushrooms...

"When you realize that 'one mind' is the Buddha, from that point on there is nothing more to do. Everything is already complete. All talk about practice or attainment is demonic deception." ~Hsu-yun (1840-1959)>>> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xuyun

Bodhinyana

"Don't be in a hurry and try to push or rush your practice. Do your meditation gently and gradually step by step. In regard to peacefulness, if you become peaceful, then accept it; if you don't become peaceful, then accept that also. That's the nature of the mind. We must find our own practice and persistently keep at it." ~Ajahn Chah http://ajahnchah.org/book/_Bodhinyana.php

STOP ROTTING IN THE QUAGMIRE OF SAMSARA!!!

To study the Buddha way Is to study oneself. To study oneself Is to forget oneself. To forget oneself is to be Enlightened by the myriad dharmas. To be enlightened By the myriad dharmas Is to bring about the dropping away Of body and mind and Of both oneself and others. The traces of enlightenment Come to an end And this traceless enlightenment Is continued endlessly. ~ Eihei Dogen (1200-1253) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogen
