Non Identification and then freedom.

Post by White Lotus » Tue Mar 13, 2018 12:47 pm

once you have stopped identifying yourself with anything, be free to enter into the market-place and take up any identification you want. i am a layman, i am a monk, i am a buddha, i am a god etc. it doesn't really matter; you won't be able to attach to any of these labels.

Zen master Huike took on an ordinary life. he disrobed and led an ordinary life of untrammeled freedom, with all its aches pains and joys. he entered the market place.

:cheers:
in any matters of importance. dont rely on me. i may not know what i am talking about. take what i say as mere speculation. i am not ordained. nor do i have a formal training. i do believe though that if i am wrong on any point. there are those on this site who i hope will quickly point out my mistakes.

Agreed.

The tricky part, for some people, might be to reach that point of non identification. :)
