Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week
October 23, 2005
WE HAVE EVERYTHING
We are noble sons and daughters of Buddha. We ARE Buddha. We have Buddha in
us. Why should we crunch ourselves down and deform our state of being? Why
don't we just expand ourselves into our perfect form, our perfect being? We
have perceptions and energies and inspiration. We have everything. We have
a spiritual friend, we have the teaching. We have everything. What more do
we want? We have everything in this whole universe. We have everything
there. We have intelligence and understanding and the materials to
understand. We have everything. We can afford to extend ourselves a bit
more....This approach is called the mahayana, the great vehicle, the
bodhisattva path [of those dedicated to helping others.] It is heroic.
