Deng Ming-Dao: Clarity

Deng Ming-Dao: Clarity

The image is not upside-down sometimes to find clarity we need focus

The image is not upside-down sometimes to find clarity we need focus

Can you see a sound?
Can you hear light?
Can you unite your senses?
Can you turn inward?

What we are all seeking is clarity.  Forget about religious rationalization.  Forget about elaborate explanations.  What we all want is clarity.  What we abhor is ignorance.  Ignorance confuses us, brings us misfortune and sorrow, and makes us miserable.  If we have clarity, then we can live with equanimity.

It is a misconception that spirituality brings everlasting happiness.  There is no such thing.  Sadness still comes to the wise, but, unlike most people, their clarity of mind allows them to see beyond the temporal emotionalism of the moment.  They are farseeing, and so happiness and sorrow become the same to them.
