Non Thinking

As long as we remain within the confines of the thinking mind,
we can’t experience the state of non-thinking.

If we can’t experience non-thinking,
we will not understand what our life truly is.

Please realize this for yourself!
Just sit.


Taizan Maezumi

Trust in You

Have good trust in yourself;
not the one you think you should be,
but the one that you are.


Taizan Maezumi Roshi

Emptiness

Emptiness is infact form when we forget the self.
There’s nothing in the universe OTHER than ourself.
Nothing to compare, name, or identify.

When it’s the only thing there is,
how can we talk about it?

Taizan Maezumi
