    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Xin Xin Ming -(XV)- Ultimate Finality

    We close this series on Master Seng-ts'an's XIN XIN MING ... FAITH IN MIND ... a simple, but subtle recipe ...

    Consider movement stationary and the stationary in motion,
    both movement and rest disappear.
    When such dualities cease to exist
    Oneness itself cannot exist.
    To this ultimate finality
    no law or description applies.

    For the unified mind in accord with the Way
    all self-centered straining ceases.
    Doubts and irresolution's vanish
    and life in true faith is possible.
    With a single stroke we are freed from bondage;
    nothing clings to us and we hold to nothing.
    All is empty, clear, self-illuminating,
    with no exertion of the mind's power.
    Here thought, feeling, knowledge, and imagination
    are of no value.
    In this world of Suchness
    there is neither self nor other-than-self

    To come directly into harmony with this reality
    just simply say when doubt arises, 'Not two.'
    In this 'no two' nothing is separate,
    nothing excluded.
    No matter when or where,
    enlightenment means entering this truth.
    And this truth is beyond extension or diminution in time or space;
    in it a single thought is ten thousand years.

    Emptiness here, Emptiness there,
    but the infinite universe stands always before your eyes.
    Infinitely large and infinitely small;
    no difference, for definitions have vanished
    and no boundaries are seen.
    So too with Being
    and non-Being.
    Don't waste time in doubts and arguments
    that have nothing to do with this.

    One thing, all things:
    move among and intermingle, without distinction.
    To live in this realization
    is to be without anxiety about non-perfection.
    To live in this faith is the road to non-duality,
    Because the non-dual is one with the trusting mind.

    Words! The Way is beyond language,
    for in it there is
    .......................... no yesterday
    .......................... no tomorrow
    .......................... no today.


    ... taking us back to the start ...

    The Great Way is not difficult
    for those who have no preferences.
    When love and hate are both absent
    everything becomes clear and undisguised.


    Today's talk is a little longer than usual, as it was part of our monthly Zazenkai at Treeleaf. Please note that there is no video in one portion due to "technical non-problems".
