This is what Wisdom means: To be changed without the slightest effort on your part, to be transformed, believe it or not, merely by waking to the reality that is not words, that lies beyond the reach of words. If you are fortunate enough to be Awakened thus, you will know why the finest language is the one that is not spoken, the finest action is the one that is not done and the finest change is the one that is not willed.
“Deluded people don’t realize that their own mind is the buddha. They keep searching outside. Don’t indulge in such illusions. Just know your mind. Beyond your mind there’s no other buddha. The sutras say, ‘Everything that has form is an illusion.’ They also say, ‘Wherever you are, there’s buddha.’—Bodhidharma
