MEDITATION and NATURE
“Meditation: see the unmoving innate nature inwardly.” Huineng, Sixth Patriarch of Zen.
“The sage lets NATURE enlighten him and follow what is.” Chuang Tzu.
(Nature includes innate nature of living and nonliving things, self and others, people and circumstances or the nature of what is.)
“One who cultivates the unmoving state does not notice whether other people are right or wrong, good or bad, or whether they have other faults. It is UNMOVING in the INNATE NATURE.”Sixth Patriarch of Zen.”The mind’s thoughts do not arise with respect to any good or evil external state. That is what ‘sitting’ is.”
“The Way is awakened from the mind. How could it be found in sitting?”
Huineng, Sixth Patriarch of Zen.
