True Way

just do it

Joju once asked Master Nam Cheon, “What is the true way?”

Nam Cheon replied, “Everyday mind is the true way.”

“Then should I try to keep it or not?”

Nam Cheon said, “If you try to keep it, you are already mistaken.”

“If I do not try to keep it, how can I understand the true way?”

Nam Cheon replied, “The true way is not dependent on understanding or not understanding. Understanding is illusion; not understanding is blankness. If you completely attain the true way of not thinking, it is like space, clear and void. So why do you make right or wrong?”

Joju heard that, and got enlightenment.
