The Greatest Gift

Wordly fools search for exotic masters.
not realizing that their own mind is the master.

 


 

The greatest gift to others
is to freely relinquish yourself.

 


 

When the mind is always moving, you travel
from one hell to the next hell.

 


 

If you use your mind to try and understand reality.
you will understand neither your mind nor reality.

If you try and understand reality without using your mind.
you will understand both your mind and reality.
