Empty Mind

October 11, 2018

Many people are afraid

to empty their minds

lest they may plunge into the void.

They do not know

that their own mind is the void.

The ignorant avoid awareness

and grasp after thoughts.

The wise neither avoid nor grasp

at either awareness or thoughts.

~Huang Po

(circa 780 to 850 , Chinese Zen Buddhist Teacher)
