“On the great road of Buddha ancestors,
there is always unsurpassable practice, continuous and sustained.
It is the circle of the way and is never cut off.
Between aspiration, practice, enlightenment, and nirvana,
there is not a moment’s gap;
continuous practice is the circle of the way.
This being so, continuous practice is unstained,
not forced by you or others.
The power of this continuous practice confirms you as well as others.
It means your practice affects the entire earth
and the entire sky in the ten directions.
Although not noticed by others or yourself, it is so.”
All around us is giving voice-giving guidance. All around us are blessings. All around us we are held and sustained. All around us in whatever way we move towards an understanding of truth, in whatever step we make towards beauty, there are whispers saying, “Amen”.
