Spiritual Self Reflection

As your self-reflection grows deeper and deeper, the moment will surely come upon you when the spiritual flower will suddenly burst into bloom, illuminating the entire universe.

This is the moment when you can transform this vast earth into solid gold, and the great rivers into an ocean of milk.

What a satisfaction this is then to your daily life! Since this is so, do not waste your time with words or phrases, or by searching for Truth in books; for the Truth is not to be found there.

They consist of mere words, which will be of no use to you at the moment of your death.

Poem by Szu-hsin Wu-hsin,(1044-1115)  Buddhism, Mahayana, Zen (Chan)

  2. Hi Kimmy, I have had many moments of serenity in my life lately as I have looked to my spirit to move beyond the pain of the past, and it is easier to connect to myself I think because of those pains. I do feel a renewed sense of all the beauty in and around me and in some way I am like a new flower blossoming. I agree you cannot find these feelings in a phrase or a book, only within you.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Love and Light,
    Janet :)
