      "If you are out to describe the truth, leave elegance to the tailor."
       
      Zen Saying
       
       

       
      Begin from the platform of honesty. If you cannot be honest and if the path
      cannot be honesty, then it cannot lead to Truth. Fabricating and fabricating,
      deliberating and deliberating, all of the different kinds of deliberations and
      fabrications that we pile up on are only going to make matters much more
      complicated than actually leading to the truth of one's own inherent nature.

      Freedom doesn’t make you immune to the human experience; it just means you
      are not identified with it anymore. Being unidentified with the human experience
      means you can embrace fully all that comes along with being  ‘an earthling’ and
      be totally available to life as it is.

      The Buddha is not going to project you to buddhahood, as if throwing a stone.
      He is not going to purify you, as if washing a dirty cloth, nor is he going to cure
      you of ignorance, like a doctor administering medicine to a passive patient.
      Having attained full enlightenment himself, he is showing you the path, and it is
      up to you to follow it or not...
       
      ~ HH Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

       

       
       
      Utopia
       
      Island where all becomes clear.
       
      Solid ground beneath your feet.
       
      The only roads are those that offer access.
       
      Bushes bend beneath the weight of proofs.
       
      The Tree of Valid Supposition grows here
      with branches disentangled since time immemorial.
       
      The Tree of Understanding, dazzlingly straight and simple,
      sprouts by the spring called Now I Get It.
       
      The thicker the woods, the vaster the vista:
      the Valley of Obviously.
       
      If any doubts arise, the wind dispels them instantly.
       
      Echoes stir unsummoned
      and eagerly explain all the secrets of the worlds.
       
      On the right a cave where Meaning lies.
       
      On the left the Lake of Deep Conviction.
      Truth breaks from the bottom and bobs to the surface.
       
      Unshakable Confidence towers over the valley.
      Its peak offers an excellent view of the Essence of Things.
       
      For all its charms, the island is uninhabited,
      and the faint footprints scattered on its beaches
      turn without exception to the sea.
       
      As if all you can do here is leave
      and plunge, never to return, into the depths.
       
      Into unfathomable life.
       
       
      ~ Wislawa Szymborska ~
       
      (A Large Number, trans. by S. Baranczak & C. Cavanagh)
       
       
       
       


       
      "The form of the formless, The image of the imageless, It is called indefinable
      and beyond imagination. Stand before it and there is no beginning. Follow it and
      there is no end. Stay with the ancient Tao, Move with the present. Knowing the
      ancient beginning is the essence of Tao. "
       
      "The source of the universe is ultimately unknowable, a great invisible river
      flowing forever through a vast and fertile valley. Silent and uncreated, it creates
      all things." 
       
      "Those who are highly evolved maintain an undiscriminating perception. Seeing
      everything, labeling nothing, they maintain their awareness of the Great Oneness.
      Thus they are supported by it."
       
      ~ Lao-Tzu
