The Buddha, The Dharma, The Sangha

"Spiritual powers and their wondrous functioning--hauling water and carrying firewood." --Layman Pang, upon his realization

Comparison brings inferiority, superiority.  When you don't compare, all inferiority, all superiority, disappear.  Then you are, you are simply there.  A small bush or a big high tree--it doesn't matter; you are yourself. You are needed.  A grass leaf is needed as much as the biggest star.  Without the grass leaf God will be less than he is.

The sound of the cuckoo is needed as much as any Buddha; the world will be less, will be less rich if this cuckoo disappears.

Just look around.  All is needed, and everything fit together.  It is an organic unity; nobody is higher and nobody is lower, nobody superior, nobody inferior.  Everybody is incomparably unique.

--Zen Tarot, Osho
