Stop Opinions

The Third Patriarch of Zen said, “Don’t seek reality, just put a stop to opinions.” He also said, “As soon as there are judgments of right and wrong, the mind is lost in a flurry.” These sayings teach you people of today what to work on.”

With any spiritual discussion, there is always a point where you just can’t understand because the very faculty trying to grasp it all is standing in the way. So what do you do at that point? Relax, sit back, and know that it is there for you somehow.
