Shodo Harada

‘No matter how much we have we always want more. This greedy love that always wants more but will not let go of what it already has, all of this attachment, has to be cut, otherwise our lives are painful. Once we cut this need for attachment we can know peace of mind for the first time. We spend so much time with thoughts of our children and our bodies – this must be cut through or we will never be liberated. All our thoughts must be thrown away – those lingering wisps of thoughts that are always flying back and forth – we must get rid of them and awaken to that true and clear mind with which we are all endowed.’ (The Path to Bodhidharma)
