Zen

“Day after day the sun.” ~Zen saying

 

“Meditation is not a selfish thing. Even though you’re diving in and experiencing the Self, you’re not closing yourself off from the world. You’re strengthening yourself, so that you can be more effective when you go back into the world.” ~David Lynch

“Instead of instilling fear, if a company offered a way for everyone in the business to dive within–to start expanding energy and intelligence–people would work overtime for free. They would be far more creative. And the company would just leap forward. This is the way it can be. It’s not the way it is, but it could be that way so easily.” ~David Lynch

“You don’t dive for specific solutions; you dive to enliven that ocean of consciousness. Then your intuition grows and you have a way of solving those problems–knowing when it’s not quite right and knowing a way to make it feel correct for you. That capacity grows and things go much more smoothly.” ~David Lynch

“The reverse side also has a reverse side.” ~Japanese Proverb

“Do not mistake understanding for realization, and do not mistake realization for liberation.” ~Tibetan Saying

“‘I have done my best’, that is about all the philosophy of living that one needs.” ~Lin-yutang

“People in the world cannot identify their own mind. They believe that what they see, or hear, or feel, or know, is mind. They are blocked, and so cannot see the brilliant spirit of their original mind.” ~Huang-po

“The things we touch have no permanence. My master would say: there is nothing we can hold onto in this world. Only by letting go can we truly possess what is real.” ~Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

“There is seldom any rational reason for having regrets about past deeds or events. Because the past does not exist in any way other than in your memory.” ~Paul Wilson

“The clouded mind sees nothing.” ~The Shadow

“‘This is my child, this is my wealth’: such thoughts are the preoccupations of fools. If we are unable to own even ourselves, why make such claims?” ~Buddha

 

“Not thinking of good, not thinking of evil – tell me, what was your original face before your mother and father were born?” ~Zen Koan
