“Your meditation is like a short holiday… That’s no good!
Don’t practice to become what you don’t believe to be
or to get what you think you don’t possess.
There is nothing to reach.
There is nothing to get.
There is nothing to build.
There is nothing to change.
No effort either relaxation.
Simply look into yourself,
recognize your natural state and stay there.
Remember… if you are thinking about it,
It is not the natural state!”
Preston, England, early winter 1984.
Dear Wang, I can rationally understand what you say but I don’t know how to transform your advice into practice…
“It is not very important because you are already beyond all thought, emotion and action that you can do.
You are already what you would like to be.”
“Listen to me…
whatever you do according to enlightenment, it brings you closer;
whatever you do without keeping it in mind, you move away from it.
Be present! Always!
Do not get distracted! Never!
When you will be very close to your greatest aspiration, cut that last wish and you will be definitely free.”
