Hui-Neng

‘The past mind cannot be grasped in that the deluded mind in the preceding thought has already passed in a flash, and there is nowhere to pursue it or look for it. The present mind cannot be grasped in that the true mind has no form, so how can it be seen? The future mind cannot be grasped in that there is originally nothing that can be grasped.’ (The Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch)
