The Still Mind

Our world observed from stillness

Song Shu Says… [Humans]

Oh, you humans….

 

A pine seed will only grow into a pine tree;

An apple seed can only grow into an apple tree;

So, too, will the mind grow into its own true nature.

But like seeds, where a pine seed can not grow into an

orange tree,

And an apple seed can not grow into an oak tree;

The mind will grow into what ever tree it is able to

grow into.

Application of the force of will is futile;

Force against those you raise will damage their roots.

Force will not make growth happen;

Instead it will ultimately end up killing the seed.

When it grows, and what it grows into is up to the seed

and the seed alone.

 

No supposed to be…

No should be…

Competing against those who are perceived separate,

will kill both,

For both believe that both are superior to both.

There is enough for everyone, and it will only become clear,

once everyone knows who they are.

 

If no one knows who they are, then there will always be

turmoil.

If you know who you are, then you know existence is on

your side.

… No need to bend it to your will,

because there, then, is nothing to fear.

 

Your brains are bigger than a squirrel’s,

yet it is a squirrel who seems to know more about

being human than you.
