Anything that is created must sooner or later die.
Enlightenment is permanent because we have not produced it; we have merely discovered it.

Meditation is not to escape from society,
but to come back to ourselves and see what is going on.
Once there is seeing, there must be acting.
With mindfulness, we know what to do and what not to do to help

In fact, everything we encounter in this world with our six senses is an inkblot test.
You see what you are thinking and feeling, seldom what you are looking at.

If an untrained sentient being can create Real Hell out of Total Ignorance,
why can't a perfect Buddha create a Real Pureland out of Total Compassion?

What you eat cannot purify your mind - but is there greed behind your choice of eating?
If yes, the mind that eats is not pure - be your choice vegetarian or not.

After a few years of meditation practice we can even learn how to occasionally ignore ourselves. And what relief that can be!

Finally he said, "If you want to see virtue, you have to have a calm mind."

By defending our faults, we betray an unsound mind.

All philosophies are mental fabrications.
There has never been a single doctrine by which one could enter the true essence of things.

All worldly pursuits have but one unavoidable and inevitable end, which is sorrow; acquisitions end in dispersion; buildings in destruction; meetings in separation; births in death. Knowing this, one should, from the very first, renounce acquisitions and storing-up, and building, and meeting; and, faithful to the commands of an eminent Guru, set about realizing the Truth. That alone is the best of religious observances.

Strong and healthy, who thinks of sickness until it strikes like lightning?
Preoccupied with the world, who thinks of death, until it arrives like thunder?

Half the spiritual life consists of remembering what we are up against and where we are going

And the other half is taking complete personal responsibility for getting there!

We could become quite satisfied with ourselves because we are sitting in meditation and are endeavoring to practice the spiritual path. Such satisfaction with ourselves is not the same as contentment. Contentment is necessary, self-satisfaction is detrimental. To be content has to include knowing we are in the right place at the right time to facilitate our own growth. But to be self-satisfied means that we no longer realize the need for growth. All these aspects are important parts of our commitment and makes us into one whole being with a one-pointed direction.

Birth and Death is a grave event;
How transient is life!
Every minute is to be grasped.
Time waits for nobody.

Our lives are based on what is reasonable and common sense;

If you wish others to know about your good deeds,
they are not truly good deeds.
If you fear others will find out about your bad deeds,
those are truly bad deeds.
