A Quote by Lin Chi on buddhahood, fool, laugh, wisdom, and ordinariness

When it's time to get dressed, put on your clothes.
When you must walk, then walk.
When you must sit, then sit.
Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life,
unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood.
When you're tired, lie down.
The fool will laugh at you
but the wise man will understand.

Lin Chi

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginning, starting over, wisdom, foolishness, fool, commitment, fluidity, going with the flow, process, spiritual, spirituality, experience, yours truly, transformation, reinvention, i, ego, drifter, rolling stone, mariner, vis

It began with the Wisdom of Foolishness, a commitment to remain fluid, receptive, in process, part of the Membrane of Things as I struck out on that spiritual Route 66, the Experience Trail, determined to follow it to the end. It began with yours truly spontaneously ceasing to be myself and becoming someone else, assuming in the blink of an “I” the role of a drifter, a rolling stone, a wayward mariner lone and visionary on the High Seas of Chance and Possibility.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on life, understanding, fool, wisdom, dharma, spoon, and soup

Though through all his life a fool associates with a wise man, he yet understands not the Dharma, as the spoon, the flavor of soup.

A fool acquires knowledge only to his own disadvantage. It destroys what good he has, and turns his brains.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on acceptance, authority, buddhism, conceit, desires, justice, pleasure, respect, solitude, thinking, fool, wise, and monk

One may desire a spurious respect and precedence among one's fellow monks, and the veneration of outsiders. "Both monks and laity should think it was my doing. They should accept my authority in all matters great or small." This is a fool's way of thinking. His self-seeking and conceit just increase. One way leads to acquisition, the other leads to nirvana. Realizing this a monk, as a disciple of the Buddha, should take no pleasure in the respect of others, but should devote himself to solitude.
