Really can't believe it's already August Zen.
What is the mind like if it's not occupied with plans and schemes, and fears that the plans and schemes will fail? What if your unexamined beliefs were to fall away and you were to live without them, and also to live without the thought that you had given anything up?
When you get free from certain fixed concepts of the way the world is, you find it is far more subtle, and far more miraculous, than you thought it was.
The poor long for riches, the rich long for heaven, but the wise long for a state of tranquility.
The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.
—Arthur Conan Doyle
Fire can't burn fire.
