A random short story for you to ponder.
Posted on Sep.06.2009 @ 09:29AM EDT by chontri

In the teachings it says that:
"All compounded things are like dreams,
illusions, bubbles, and shadows;
they are like dew and like lightning,
and should be seen in this way."

What eye do you see with?
When you have fully attained this eye,you will see
the mountains, rivers, and earth do not ruin or adulterate yourself,
nor do yourself ruin or adulterate the mountauns, rivers, and earth.
There is no more sacred doctrines therein to make for understading or obstruction.
And there is no ordinary convention to make for understanding or obstruction.

But can you believe it?
If you can believe it, then consciouness conditioned by ignorance
turns into endless meditation.
If you can't belive it, endless meditation turns into consciousness
conditioned by ignorance.

Ch'an master Tsu-hsin
