So much is found after
The cessation of seeking.

Every form reflects It,
Yet It cannot be seen by the eyes.
In silence,
A subtler inner eye opens
That sees the Real underlying all appearances.

All presence that is--you, me, it--occurs against a background of Total Absence.

You are not your cart, nor are you the horse pulling it. You are the knower of both and the identity of neither.

The dream lasts as long as the dreamer. The end of the latter is the end of the former. Although it may not seem so, the same can be said for the world and the individual. The world is very seductive. It creates a force that draws attention toward it. Unless and until there is a countering pull from Conscious Being Itself,clarity is not possible.

What is keeping one from being in one's natural state?
One is constantly moving away from OneSelf.
One wants to be happy;
One is dissatisfied with one's experiences of life.
One wants new ones.
One wants to perfect oneself,
To change oneself.
Trying to be something other than what one is, is
The going away from OneSelf.
It is the resistance to what-is.
The desire to alter this you, is
The only energy that sustains it.
In the absence of this energy
~You~ cannot continue;
THEN, THE NATURAL STATE SHINES EFFORTLESSLY

The individual perceives that
Life is happening to him whereas
The one who has
Relinquished his individuality
Perceives that life is
Merely happening.
This is the state wherein
Tension cannot arise.

Q: Master Wu Hsin, I come before you because I am not seeing
any results from my efforts. What do you advise me to do?

A: As sunlight hitting an object creates a shadow ,
the light of consciousness hitting the form of its instrument
creates what in essence is also a shadow, the seeming self.
What efforts can such a shadow make?
Can you cook food on a painting of a fire?

Q: Master, how do I remove this sense of "mine" which pervades so much?

A: When Wu Hsin has a brief stay in a guest house,
he dare not claim the water pitcher beside the bed as “mine”.
In much the same way, when one understands that this seeming life
is merely a brief stay, the notion of “mine” will not arise.

Q: Master, why do I not see what you see?

A: You have accepted your mind as your teacher.
You listen to it and obey its instructions.
Little wonder you have gone so far from your true nature.

Q: Master Wu Hsin, I have been told that you can help me become unlimited.
If this is so, please instruct me in your ways.

A: First, find who it is who assigned limitation to you.
You will find it is only yourself, as you have defined yourself.
Limitation is the very essence of personality.
Investigate whether or not you have been lying to yourself. That is all.

Q: Master, why do you refuse to recommend any practice?

A: All practices require doing something.
As such, they reinforce the cage that holds you, the notion of a doer.
Any method, no matter how promising, fortifies the structure of the ego,
further increasing the chaos.
It is like tasking a cat to guard a bowl of milk.
Only being requires no doing.
This is the one true practice.

The state Wu Hsin speaks of
Cannot be sought by pursuit nor
Escaped via flight.
It is here; it is now.
Concerning oneself with
How to attain it is merely postponement.
The focus of attention for
A single second is sufficient.
A single broken thread may
Unravel an entire garment.

The goal of the individual is
The perpetuation and preservation of
The individual.
When the individual is understood
As nothing other than a construct,
All notions of the goal disappear.

Those in alignment
Follow the order of What-Is, they
Follow the way of What-Is, they
Follow the timing of What-Is and they
Follow the design of What-Is.
They are calm;
They are clear;
They are real.
Having arrived at the root,
They are never confused by the branches.

Just watching.
Not trying to get anything.
Not expecting anything.
Not seeking anything.
Not hoping or praying.
Not commenting or judging.
Not intending to relax or breathe correctly.
Purposelessly, just watching.
Do not ask Wu Hsin to describe
What happens next.
How can he?
Then, it would be watched for.

That which has always been is
Like a seamless ball.
Its beginning is nowhere and
Everywhere.
Its terminus is everywhere and
Nowhere.
Do you see
It cannot be shown?

The cloud has no destination
Which it must reach.
It is purposeless.
In much the same way,
When there is no longer
A sense of worry,
A concern for what comes next,
One can walk without
Needing to arrive.

Every life becomes
Sheer wonderment when
The mental commentary is removed.
The cup of black tea is
Transformed into a holy moment.

That which occurs naturally
Is vastly different from
What occurs through effort.
The former is aligned with the world,
The latter,
Only with the self.
The stream flows effortlessly.
What has to be done
To bring the arrival of spring?

One of the most beautiful and unknown gems in Eastern non-duality is WU HSIN. His name literally means ‘no-mind’


~ To be eternal is to
Stand outside of the process of
Becoming and
The field of time.
Upon the clear perception that
There is nothing to become and
No time in which to achieve it,
Eternity is realized. ~

You believe that
There is nothing more than
Your God.
Wu Hsin says
There is nothing more than
Your God and I am that Nothing.

Using the flutist’s flute
Does not make one
A flutist.
Wu Hsin has no tools,
No method to render.
He speaks of how it was for him,
Not implying that it will be
Likewise for another.

It is the way of energy that
It does not need a governor.
Why perpetuate an illusion
By seeking to control anything?
All enemies are implicit allies
In the game of hatred.
In the absence of either,
There is no game.
