Cosmos: Infinite Mind

Look at the sky.

All the stars you can see,
are all the infinite buddhas
of past, present and future.

All of them live in the Here-Now.

Space is limitless, like Mind.

Once you wake up,
a new star is born.

Luminous emptiness.

Sosan: satori

There was a practitioner who approached Sosan, the third patriarch.

Sosan told him:

"Close your eyes and come backwards"

The practitioner suddenly reached Satori.

His eye opened.

He went away walking backwards.

Sosan told him:

"Now you can show others the art of reversal."

That practitioner would later become the fourth patriarch.

Clear Mind: no-thought and Mushin

Stop clinging.

Stop craving.

Then, and only then,
you can see the nature
of thought.

Then, and only then,
mind will get Clear.

As long as you keep
clinging and craving,
thinking will enslave you.

So my friend, do not crave
for enlightenment, and do
not cling to selfliberation.

Einstein: space-time

Coming out from NOW,
you plunged into space-time.

Coming out from nowhere,
you appeared just HERE.

the core of space-time.

You found the key to unlock
the secret of appearances.

But you missed the point,
and you remained in duality.

To unveil the unification theory,
just remain in the natural state.

The finger pointing at the Moon

Full moon,
unborn wisdom mind.

The genuine master,
is just the finger pointing out.

Do not take the finger for the Moon,
or you will never reach enlightenment.

Let wisdom express freely,
and forget the finger.

Once the moon is full,
get a no-finger to point out.

Moonlight Zen.
