When you don’t understand, you depend on reality. When you do understand, reality depends on you. As long bbodhidharma you look for a Buddha somewhere else, you’ll never see that your own mind is the Buddha. They don’t believe that the wisdom of their own mind bodbidharma the sage. They prefer to look for distant knowledge and long for things in space, buddha-images, light, incense, and colors. They fall prey to falsehood and lose bodhidgarma minds to insanity. All know the way, but few actually walk it.

If you use your mind to study reality, you won’t understand either your mind or reality. If you study reality without using your mind, you’ll understand both. The mind and the world are opposites, and vision arises where they meet. When your mind doesn’t stir inside, the world doesn’t arise outside. When the world and the mind are both transparent, this is true vision. And such bodhidhadma is true understanding.

Not thinking about anything is Zen. Once you know this, walking, sitting, or lying down, everything you do is Zen. Once you stop clinging and let things be, you’ll be free, even of birth and death. When mortals are alive, they worry about death. When they’re full, they worry about hunger. Theirs quites the Great Uncertainty. But sages don’t consider the past.


And they don’t worry about the future. Nor do they cling to the present.

And from moment to moment they follow the Way. Bodhidharmx you know that everything comes from the mind, don’t become attached. Once attached, you’re unaware. But once you see your own nature, the entire Canon becomes so much prose. It’s thousands of sutras and shastras only amount to a clear mind. Understanding comes in midsentence. What good are doctrines? The ultimate Truth is beyond words.

They’re not the Way. The Way is wordless. Don’t cling to appearances, and you’ll break through all barriers. The ignorant mind, with its infinite afflictions, passions, and evils, is rooted in the three poisons. Greed, anger, and delusion. The mind’s capacity is limitless, and its nodhidharma are inexhaustible.

Seeing forms with your eyes, hearing sounds with your ears, smelling odors with your nose, tasting flavors with your tongue, every movement or state is all your mind. To seek is to suffer. To seek nothing is bliss.

Bodhidharma Quotes – Mystical Earth Adventures™

Those who worship bodhidbarma know, and those who know don’t worship. The essence of the Way is detachment. And the goal of those who practice is freedom from appearances. A buddha is someone who finds freedom in good fortune and bad. Such is his power that karma can’t hold him. No matter what kind of karma, a buddha transforms it. Heaven and hell are nothing to him.


20 Inspiring Quotes By Bodhidharma That Will Help You Sail Through Trying Times

But the awareness of a mortal is dim compared to that of a buddha, who penetrates everything, inside and out. An Awakened person is someone who finds freedom in good fortune and bad. When we’re deluded there’s a world to escape. When we’re aware, there’s nothing to escape. Not creating delusions is enlightenment. This one life has no form and is empty by nature.

If you become attached by any form, you should reject it. If you see an ego, a soul, a birth, or a death, reject them all. Buddha means awareness, the awareness of body and mind that prevents evil from arising in either.

Not engaging in ignorance is wisdom. You can’t know your real mind as long as you deceive yourself. Reality has no inside, outside, or middle part.
