Compassion: Patience

If you really want to help other people
to abandon suffering
turning confusion into wisdom,
be patient.

Compassion without patience,
is as useless as wisdom
without skilful means
or a car without gas.

Compassion without wisdom
turns into masochism.
Patience without intelligence
turns into permissiveness.

Faith without intelligence
degenerates into fanaticism;
Intelligence without compassion
turns into cunningness.

Supernova: The beginning

Let your old habits explode,
let your old dogmas blast,
and awareness will shine.

Let the old I explode
then the MINE will blast
and satori will show up.

Satori: Crossing the river

The mind is fresh and pure,
the water too.

The water is moving,
the mind too.

The rocks are still,
the mind too.

Do not build a bridge
to get to the other shore.

Get into the water,
get wet and see its nature.

Satori is unexpected,
like slipping into the water.
