Have you ever honestly examined your life and yourself, and realised that you are…
Abandon study, and your worries will cease.
What is the use of linguistic subtleties? Much better is knowledge of the distinction between good and evil.
Alas, the world has…

God is the dancer
creation the dance
Be silent and contemplate the dance
Just look …
a star, a flower, a leaf, a bird, a stone
Look, listen, touch, taste, smell …
it won’t be long before you meet
the dancer in the dance.
The disciple was always complaining to his Master,
“You are hiding the final secret of Zen from me.”
And he would not accept the Master’s denials.
One day they were walking in the hills
when they heard a bird sing.
“Did you hear that bird sing?”
said the Master.
“Yes,” said the disciple.
“Well, now you know that I have hidden nothing from you.”
– Anthony de Mello, The Song of the Bird
