Mind is like the wood or stone from which a person carves an image. If he carves a dragon or a tiger, and seeing it fears it, he is like a stupid person creating a picture of hell and then afraid to face it. If he does not fear it, then his unnecessary thoughts will vanish. Part of the mind produces sight, sound, taste, odor and sensibility, and from them raises greed, anger and ignorance with al] their accompanying likes and dislikes.
Have a good weekend staring down the carvings of your fears!
Thanks, Lynette and Bodhidharma! I needed to hear that this morning. I was believing the woven stories I started last night!
It’s been a week of believing the carved tigers, lions, and elephants. Oh My! Now I’m serving them tea. 😉
How coincidental is this! My guy paints the same picture in a little different way – and yet the ancient truth remains the same… I love it!
Cool! Only one truth.
Sorry – that was kind of a blinding flash of the obvious wasn’t it… Yes, many carvings here this week as well…Wishing you a peaceful weekend…
Well… I was blinded by the question “Who is her “guy?” 😉
“my guy” ? LOL – was referring to “the guy” in the video that I posted yesterday. Not really “my guy” as I don’t follow him. I found the timing interesting that he was also talking about how the mind creates all these obstacles to fully living, in his own unique way… 😉
Cool jewel from a shrewd dude 🙂
More to come next week!
