The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. Without the sense of kinship with men of like mind, without the occupation with the objective world, the eternally unattainable in the field of art and scientific endeavors, life would have seemed empty to me. The trite objects of human efforts — possessions, outward success, luxury — have always seemed to me contemptibleAlbert
As a human being, one has been endowed with just enough intelligence to be able to see clearly how utterly inadequate that intelligence is when confronted with what exists.Albert
As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.Albert
Mind is always cunning,
Soul is always pure.
Mind is very caculative,
Soul is very innocent,
Mind always lies,
Soul knows the true,
Mind limits your world,
Soul knows no limits,
Mind controls your life,
Soul fuels your life,
Mind is alway at doubt,
Soul knows the path,
Mind needs love,
Soul radiates love,
Mind is always a begger,
Soul is always an emperor
..but still Mind always
wins the battles
and the Soul always remains
In generosity and helping others,
be like a river…
In compassion and grace,
be like sun…
In concealing others’ faults,
be like night…
In anger and fury,
be like dead…
In modesty and humility,
be like earth…
be like a sea…
Either exist as you are,
or be as you look.
Mind is the origin of all things.
Mind is the universal seed,
Both samsara and nirvana spring forth from it.
As is nirvana, so is samsara.
Do not think there is any distinction.
Yet it possesses no single nature
For I know it as quite pure.
Here there is no beginning, no middle, no end,
Neither samsara nor nirvana.
In this state of highest bliss
There is neither self nor other.
Whatever you see, that is it,
In front, behind, in all the ten directions.
One should not think of molecules or atoms;
It is this supreme bliss that pours forth unceasingly as existence.
Do not sit at home, do not go to the forest,
But recognize mind wherever you are.
When one abides in complete and perfect enlightenment,
Where is samsara and where is nirvana ?
Look and listen, touch and eat,
smell, wander, sit and stand,
Renounce the vanity of discussion,
Abandon thought and be not moved from singleness.
Abandon thought and be just like a child.
