Divest Yourself Of All Thoughts

No phenomenon lasts for even so long as an instant. Look into this for yourself. See it clearly.

There is nothing to be attached to, as all phenomena are ungraspable (instantaneous and formless).

This dream is like identifying with a shadow. It’s like investing an echo with illusory form.

A scarecrow stands in a field and crows rawk at it. A rope gets mistaken for snake after snake.

Cast away all distinctions. Be without thought and without mind.

Phenomena are the hallucinatory offspring of thoughts, and have no more reality than thoughts. Divest yourself of all thoughts, and wake up!

-Lao Tzu
