But while success and failure depend on conditions, the mind neither waxes nor wanes.
If we should be blessed by some great reward, such as fame or fortune, it's the fruit of a seed planted by us in the past.
As mortals, we're ruled by conditions, not by ourselves.
The Way is basically perfect. It doesn't require perfecting.
All phenomena are empty.
Once you stop clinging and let things be, you'll be free, even of birth and death. You'll transform everything.
If you use your mind to look for a Buddha, you won't see the Buddha.
