Ta Hui

‘Old Yellow Face (Buddha) has said, “When the mind does not vainly grasp past things, does not long for things in the future, and does not dwell on anything in the present, then you realize fully that the three times are all empty and still.” You shouldn’t think about past events, whether good or bad; if you think about them, that obstructs the Path. You shouldn’t consider future events; to consider them is crazy confusion. Present events are right in front of you; whether they’re pleasant or unpleasant, don’t fix your mind on them. If you do fix your mind on them, it will disturb your heart. Just take everything in its time, responding according to circumstances, and you will naturally accord with this principle.’ (Swampland Flowers)

Another fine demonstration of energy saving
