2020-08-18 Chopping and Burning the Tree of Emptiness 24:41
Too busy in the world, all entangled, we yearn to be free. So direct the mind to Nibbana - like a tree that leans to the East. And when it falls, it will fall in that direction. We too will arrive if we aim well. Aim for the far goal but keep attention in the present where we are. Chop wood for a thousand days, but in a single moment, we see into the emptiness of it all. We burn everything and light the mind with the fire of wisdom.
