Rinzai

‘Don’t continue on with thoughts that have already arisen, and don’t arouse any that have not yet been aroused. Just this will be worth far more to you than ten years of pilgrimage.’ (Rinzai Roku)

As so often, the master’s advice is very simple – and much easier than ten years of pilgrimage, assuming you had such an intention in the first place. But as so often, simple does not make it any easier to uphold.
