Way thought for the day 19th November 2011

It is better merely to live one’s life, realizing one’s potential, rather than wishing for sanctification. He who lives in filial piety and love has no need of ethical teaching. He is now beyond all redemption.

When cunning and profit are renounced, stealing and fraud will disappear. But ethics and kindness, and even wisdom, are insufficient in themselves to give satisfaction to the human mind. Better by far to see the simplicity of raw silk’s beauty and the uncarved block, to be one with oneself and with one’s brother, than to follow false complications. It is better by far to be at one with The All, developing selflessness, tempering desire, removing the wish, being compassionate. Such are great values.
