Great Love

Zen Master Seung Sahn

Often, we want to “keep it.” That is just a big mistake. When you are doing something, just do it. Understanding is an illusion. If, you are not thinking, the answer is pure and clear, which is always in front of you.

Beautiful words will teach correct direction. If you are attached to beautiful speech or holding your opinion, you cannot attain their true meaning. So put it all down – your opinion, your condition, and your situation. Then your mind is clear like space. Then a correct answer will appear by itself. This is wisdom.

When you try something and don’t attain it, don’t worry! Don’t be attached and don’t try to understand it. Only go straight, try, try, try nonstop. If you wish to pass through this gate, do not give rise to thinking.

This is the Great Love.
