To see form but not be corrupted by form or to hear sound but not be corrupted by sound is liberation.
Freeing oneself from words is liberation.
Not to be subject to afflictions is what’s meant by liberation.
If you really want to find the Way, don’t hold on to anything.
→ The Zen Teachings Of Bodhidharma - Translated by Red Pine
33: Just as a fletcher straightens an arrow shaft, even so the discerning man straightens his mind — so fickle and unsteady, so difficult to guard.
35: Wonderful, indeed, it is to subdue the mind, so difficult to subdue, ever swift, and seizing whatever it desires. A tamed mind brings happiness.
