Seeking enlightenment

A buddha is one who does not seek.18465691
In seeking this, you turn away from it.
The principle is the principle of
Nonseeking; when you seek it,
You lose it.
If you cling to nonstriving,
This is the same as striving.
— Pai-chang (720-814)

If you’re waiting around for some enlightenment to find you then you presume there is a future where things will be different or better, there’s not. Anything found by you is an imagined artifact of what may actually be true, and as long as you remain fascinated by what you find you will ignore the profound emptiness that circumscribes the myth of the finder.
— Night Sky Sangha
