Search back into your own vision – think back to the mind that thinks.
Who is it?

Wu-Men

He sits down in it.
He reposes in the immediate as if it were infinity – which it is.
That is religion, and the duck has it.
How about you?

Donald C. Babcock

The outer work will never be puny
if the inner work is great

Meister Eckhart

quote

Saints are what they are not because their sanctity makes them admirable to others,
but because the gift of sainthood makes it possible for them to admire everyone else.

Thomas Merton

quote

Hatred does not cease by hatred; hatred ceases only by love.
This is the eternal law.

The Dhammapada

quote

Knock,
and He’ll open the door.
Vanish,
and He’ll make you shine like the sun.

Fall,
and He’ll raise you to the heavens.
Become nothing,
and He’ll turn you into everything!

Awakened within a dream

quote

For the seasoned practitioner, even the Dharma must not become an attachment.

As an analogy; to clean a shirt, it is necessary to use soap. However, if the suds are not then rinsed out, the garment will not be truly clean. Similarly, the practitioner’s mind will not be fully liberated until he severs attachment to everything, including the Dharma itself.

Traditional Buddhist teaching

A man’s true wealth is the good that he does in this world to his fellows.

Muhammad

quote

Every time you smile at someone it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.

Mother Teresa
