A “pagan” asked Buddha, “With words, with silence, will you tell me (the Way)?”
Buddha silently kept meditating.
The “pagan” bowed and thanked the Buddha, saying, “With the compassion you have cleared away the clouds of my mind and have made me enter into the awakening.”
After he left, Ananda asked the Buddha what he had attained.
The Buddha said, “A good horse runs even a shadow of the whip.”
“In the end these things matter most:
How well did you love?
How fully did you live?
How deeply did you let go?”
We are shaped by our thoughts;
we become what we think.
When the mind is pure,
joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
“When you dig a well, there’s no sign of water until you reach it,
only rocks and dirt to move out of the way.
You have removed enough; soon the pure water will flow,
” said Buddha.”
“A human is not called wise because one talks
if one is peaceful,loving
one is in truth called wise.”
“I let my head fall back, and I gazed into the Eternal Blue Sky.
It was morning.
Some of the sky was yellow, some the softest blue.
One small cloud scuttled along.
Strange how everything below can be such death and chaos and pain
above the sky is peace, sweet blue gentleness.
I heard a shaman say once,
the Ancestors want our souls to be like the blue sky.”
