the sage

The formless mind can operate brilliantly, responding to sound, responding to form, illuminating wherever it is directed.

Even though it may be localized, it is not local; while going along with the flow high and low, it is altogether inconceivable.

If you look for it, it has no head; and it has no tail: where do its surges of radiant light come from?

Just this right now is all mental: the mind is used to clarify mind, and mind reverts to spontaneity.

Since it does not abide anywhere, where can you look for it?

Its operation has no tracks and no traces. Get to know the person who is clearly seeking right now; don't disregard this and seek another aim.

- Kao-ch'eng
