The Buddha, The Dharma, The Sangha

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

Mind can never be intelligent--only no mind is intelligent.  Only no mind is original and radical.  Only no mind is revolutionary--revolution in action.  

The mind gives you a sort of stupor.  Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, you go on living--at the minimum.  You don't live at the maximum.

Your flame remains very dim.  Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have collected in the past, the flame arises--clean, clear, alive, young.  Your whole life becomes a flame, and a flame without any smoke.  That is what awareness is.
