Sensei Post in A Zen Thing, Quotes

Know the mind and see its essence, and you may speak at will and go wherever your feet take you — — nothing is not a path.
Liao-an

I like this particular saying as it goes contrary to the typical empty mind philosophy. While I believe there is some merit to keeping your mind calm it should not be empty! This meditation point emphasizes the fact that we must understand our own mind before we can control anything around us. Without that understanding we will not have the confidence to reach our potential. Far to many people do not even understand the reasons for their own actions, how then can they understand the actions of their fellow man? Find yourself and you will see others for what and who they are, this opens many paths throughout life.
