drop the burden

October 4, 2010

There is no path or way you must walk and there is no gate through which you must pass. That is why they speak of the “gateless gate” in Zen.

Throw off the terrible burden of your own salvation!

There is a moment when all seeking comes to an end and the seeker is seen as a notion or concept with no substance or reality.

That moment is NOW.

– Richard Young

    This is beautiful and coincides with an email I got from a friend yesterday in which she said to me, “I hope that you do not cross over into what is so easy to slip into in spiritual work: following instructions from authorities outside your own, indigenous wisdom, trying so hard to be an excellent pupil that you bypass your direct line to God.”
