No Competition on the Path of Awakening

Yutang Lin

On the path of non-self who is there to compete with?
Hindrances created by selfishness should be removed.
Wide and deep field of realization is open to cultivation.
Naturally spring blossoms and autumn harvests will arrive.


There is no self on the path of awakening; where could a competitor come from? The work to do is only to recognize hindrances created by one's own grasping and turn them around into opportunities for growth. Blank essence sets no limitation. According to how one cultivates, corresponding harvest will come naturally in time.
