"Stick nowhere to your thoughts,is the attitude of having your thoughts"~~Buddha
I invite my brethrens of Spirituality to sip & savour tis very depth of Buddha's wisdom. The 6th Zen Master Hui Neng,attained his enlightenment while heard of this quote told by his master.
In Mahayana Zen, Zen people not only know tht :I am not my thoughts (in contrast wth 'I think,therefore i am'), but they r even of the view that thoughts are 1 of the greatest gifts & truths of the universe.Hence,they use it carefully & briskly,as the way they use the wooden bowl during their breakfast.But if the bowl droped and is broken.Without even a sigh & remorse,they will just make a new 1 for their lunch.
Ancient zen people had diluted d truth into daily activities without being torn by d mind of duality.
After d death of D.T. Tsuzuki,not much of attention was drawn to this gist of the gr8 scripture in english language.
May this seed of wisdom sown on your fertile land of consciousness.~~wth metta
