Before enlightenment, 'I chop wood, carry water';
after enlightenment, chopping-carrying.

10 words.
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.

Sunlight is the blessed source;
Bodhisattvas are the unobstructed windows.

no truth to find
stop seeking mind
that's all

'No need to seek the real;
Just extinguish your views.'

(Sengcan)
1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

Lying is just the natural way ordinary minds work unceasingly.
