The way of purification

in #spirituality5 months ago

今人專求無念 而終不可無 只是前念不滯 後念不迎 但將現在的隨緣 打發得去 自然漸漸入無 (後 81)

People want to be free from thoughts(without thoughts and serene). But eventually give up. Neither blocking former thoughts(past memory) nor accepting behind thoughts(expectation on future), just stay mind on the current one that related. Then it will gradually enter tranquility. (Book2 81)

Just looking at the thoughts that arise in the present without judgement is the shortcut to stillness.
