On Mindfulness

 

Do not cling to your own opinion. Refrain from discussing your personal views with others. Holding onto or debating your judgments will hinder your practice. Put down all attachment to thinking – this is the true teaching of Buddha. Do not go where you have no business. Do not listen to talk which does not concern you. Do not make bad karma of desire, anger or ignorance.

If in this lifetime
You do not open your mind,
You cannot digest
Even one drop of water.

Zen Master Seung Sahn
