    "Hsin Hsin Ming: Verses on the Faith Mind"
    by Seng T’san

    Seng T’san who lived in the sixth century, was the third Chinese patriarch of Zen.
    The poem attributed to him, the Hsin Hsin Ming, is one of the earliest and most influential Zen writings, blending together Buddhist and Taoist teachings.


    至道無難The Great Way is not difficult
    唯嫌揀擇for those who have no preferences.

    但莫憎愛 When love and hate are both absent
    洞然明白 everything becomes clear and undisguised.
    毫釐有差 Make the smallest distinction, however,
    天地懸隔 and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.

    欲得現前 If you wish to see the truth
    莫存順逆 then hold no opinions for or against anything.
    違順相爭 To set up what you like against what you dislike
    是爲心病 is the disease of the mind.

    不識玄旨 When the deep meaning of things is not understood
    徒勞念靜 the mind's essential peace is disturbed to no avail.

    圓同太虚 The Way is perfect like vast space
    無欠無餘 where nothing is lacking and nothing is in excess.
    良由取捨 Indeed, it is due to our choosing to accept or reject
    所以不如 that we do not see the true nature of things.
    莫逐有縁 Live neither in the entanglements of outer things,
    勿住空忍 nor in inner feelings of emptiness.
    一種平懷 Be serene in the oneness of things
    泯然自盡 and such erroneous views will disappear by themselves.

    止動歸止 When you try to stop activity to achieve passivity
    止更彌動 your very effort fills you with activity.
    唯滯兩邊 As long as you remain in one extreme or the other,
    寧知一種 you will never know Oneness.

    一種不通 [size=15]Those who do not live in the single Way

    兩處失功 fail in both activity and passivity,
    遣有沒有 assertion and denial. To deny the reality of things
    遣有沒有 to assert the emptiness of things is to miss their reality.

    多言多慮 The more you talk and think about it,
    轉不相應 the further astray you wander from the truth.
    絶言絶慮 Stop talking and thinking
    無處不通 and there is nothing you will not be able to know.

    歸根得旨 To return to the root is to find the meaning,
    隨照失宗 but to pursue appearances is to miss the source.
    須臾返照 At the moment of inner enlightenment,
    勝卻前空 there is a going beyond appearance and emptiness.
    前空轉變 The changes that appear to occur in the empty world
    皆由妄見 we call real only because of our ignorance.
    不用求眞 Do not search for the truth;
    唯須息見 only cease to cherish opinions.

    二見不住 Do not remain in the dualistic state;
    慎莫追尋 avoid such pursuits carefully.
    纔有是非 If there is even a trace of this and that, of right and wrong,
    紛然失心 the Mind-essence will be lost in confusion.
    二由一有 Although all dualities come from the One,
    一亦莫守 do not be attached even to this One.

    一心不生 When the mind exists undisturbed in any Way,
    萬法無咎 nothing in the world can offend,
    無咎無法 and when a thing can no longer offend, it ceases to exist in the old way.

    不生不心 When no discriminating thoughts arise, the old mind ceases to exist.
    能隨境滅 When thought objects vanish, the thinking-subject vanishes,
    境逐能沈 and when the mind vanishes, objects vanish.

    境由能境 Things are objects because there is a subject or mind;
    能由境能 and the mind is a subject because there are objects.
    欲知兩段 Understand the relativity of these two
    元是一空 and the basic reality: the unity of emptiness.
    一空同兩 In this Emptiness the two are indistinguishable
    齊含萬象 and each contains in itself the whole world.
    不見精麁 If you do not discriminate between coarse and fine
    寧有偏黨 you will not be tempted to prejudice and opinion.

    大道體寛 To live in the Great Way
    無易無難 is neither easy nor difficult.
    小見狐疑 But those with limited views
    轉急轉遲 are fearful and irresolute; the faster they hurry, the slower they go.

    執之失度 Clinging cannot be limited;
    必入邪路 even to be attached to the idea of enlightenment is to go astray.
    放之自然 Just let things be in their own way
    體無去住 and there will be neither coming nor going.

    任性合道 Obey the nature of things
    逍遙絶惱 and you will walk freely and undisturbed.
    繋念乖眞 When thought is in bondage the truth is hidden,
    昏沈不好 for everything is murky and unclear.
    不好勞神 The burdensome practice of judging brings annoyance and weariness.
    何用疏親 What benefit can be derived from distinctions and separations?

    欲取一乘 If you wish to move in the One Way
    勿惡六塵 do not dislike even the world of senses and ideas.
    六塵不惡 Indeed, to accept them fully
    還同正覺 is identical with true Enlightenment.

    智者無爲 The wise man strives to no goals
    愚人自縛 but the foolish man fetters himself.
    法無異法 There is one Dharma, not many;
    妄自愛著 distinctions arise from the clinging needs of the ignorant.
    將心用心 To seek Mind with discriminating mind
    豈非大錯 is the greatest of all mistakes.

    迷生寂亂 Rest and unrest derive from illusion;
    悟無好惡 with enlightenment there is no liking and disliking.
    一切二邊 All dualities come from
    妄自斟酌 ignorant inference.
    夢幻虚華 They are like dreams of flowers in air:
    何勞把捉 foolish to try to grasp them.
    得失是非 Gain and loss, right and wrong;
    一時放卻 such thoughts must finally be abolished at once.

    眼若不睡 If the eye never sleeps,
    諸夢自除 all dreams will naturally cease.
    心若不異 If the mind makes no discriminations,
    萬法一如 the ten thousand things are as they are, of single essence.

    一如體玄 To understand the mystery of this One-essence
    兀爾忘虚 is to be released from all entanglements.
    萬法齊觀 When all things are seen equally
    歸復自然 the timeless Self-essence is reached.
    泯其所以 No comparisons or analogies are possible
    不可方比 in this causeless, relationless state.

    止動無動 Consider motion in stillness and stillness in motion;
    動止無止 both movement and stillness disappear.
    兩既不成 When such dualities cease to exist
    一何有爾 Oneness itself cannot exist.
    究竟窮極 To this ultimate finality
    不存軌則 no law or description applies.

    契心平等 For the unified mind in accord with the Way
    所作倶息 all self-centered striving ceases.
    狐疑盡淨 Doubts and irresolutions vanish
    正信調直 and life in true faith is possible.

    一切不留 With a single stroke we are freed from bondage;
    無可記憶 nothing clings to us and we hold to nothing.
    虚明自照 All is empty, clear, self-illuminating,
    不勞心力 with no exertion of the mind's power.
    非思量處 Here thought, feeling, knowledge, and imagination
    識情難測 are of no value.
    眞如法界 In this world of Suchness
    無他無自 there is neither self nor other-than-self.

    要急相應 To come directly into harmony with this reality
    唯言不二 just simply say when doubt arises, "Not two."
    不二皆同 In this "not two" nothing is separate,
    無不包容 nothing is excluded.
    十方智者 No matter when or where,
    皆入此宗 enlightenment means entering this truth.
    宗非促延 And this truth is beyond extension or diminution in time or space;
    一念萬年 in it a single thought is ten thousand years.

    無在不在 Emptiness here, Emptiness there,
    十方目前 but the infinite universe stands always before your eyes.

    極小同大 Infinitely large and infinitely small;
    忘絶境界 no difference, for definitions have vanished
    極大同小
    不見邊表 and no boundaries are seen.
    有即是無 So too with Being
    無即是有 and non-Being.
    若不如此 Waste no time in doubts and arguments
    必不相守 that have nothing to do with this.

    一即一切 One thing, all things;
    一切即一 move among and intermingle, without distinction.
    但能如是 To live in this realization
    何慮不畢 is to be without anxiety about non-perfection.
    信心不二 To live in this faith is the road to non-duality,
    不二信心 because the non-dual is one with the trusting mind.

    言語道斷 Words! The Way is beyond language,
    非去來今 for in it there is
    no yesterday
    no tomorrow
    no today.



    *) The title of the Hsin-hsin Ming may be explained in the following way:

    Hsin means "belief" or "faith." This is not the faith in the ordinary sense; it is a belief that comes from firsthand experience, a faith which arises out of supreme knowledge and wisdom of enlightenment. This "believing" is an affirmation that all existence or reality is essentially the Buddha mind, which is our true nature. Hsin is the conviction that at the bottom of all phenomena lies the One Mind, the Buddha mind, which is one with our real nature, the Buddha-nature.

    Hsin literally means "heart." It means mind, not the deluded mind of the ignorant but the Buddha-mind. Hsin is the mind that merge with the all-encompassing One Mind.

    Ming literally means "inscription." It means written expression or record. Ming also means warnings or admonitions.
    Hsin-hsin Ming is one of the earliest and most influential Zen writings. It is usually referred to as the first Zen poem. The Hsin-hsin Ming has an important place In Ch'an Buddhist tradition. The poem has been very influential in Zen circles and many important commentaries were written on it. The opening stanza, " The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences” is quoted by many Zen masters as well as in the classical Zen works such as the Blue Cliff Records. It is considered as a poem which reveals the essence of Zen philosophy.

    You have come to this moment of potential karmic resolution in order to recognize, from a place of nonjudgment, the essence of both roles in any interaction with another being, and to know that there is Divinity in all of it. Each of you fosters the emergence of the other into a state that transcends the need to perpetuate conditions that are calculated to hold you here at diminished levels of awareness.

    Each of you, as consciousness, volunteered to go back into the arenas of turmoil, as an emotionally bound piece of fragmented consciousness, and explore some of the infinite possible variations on the theme of separation from who you really are. So ong as you continued to manifest your ego investment in taking what transpired at face value, you served to reinforce the parameters for repeating that kind of experience.

    The piece of you that separated from your own Divine essence, somewhere along the way, has been hashing out the vibrational manifestations of that self-perpetuating spiral, ever since. Now, it is time to shift that pattern. For the calling of Divine intent has been heard throughout Creation. It is time to put down your swords and your shields--and go home.


    From the book "oneness", by rasha.

    STRESS


    I am not sure exactly how this works, but this is amazingly accurate.

    The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels at the Mayo Clinic and later at the Fletcher Medical Center in Burlington

    Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress will find many differences between the two dolphins.



    The more differences a person finds, the more stress that person is experiencing.



    Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences, you may need to take a vacation.














    No Need to Reply, I'll be on Vacation!
