Ching Ch'ing, a Chinese Ch'an master, asked a monk:
-What is the sound outside?
The monk answered:
-That is the sound of rain.
The master said:
-Sentient beings are upside down, they lose themselves in pursuit of things.

You are the cause of your suffering - you can own it if you desire. You are the key to your liberation. You are the one who gets in the way. You are the gift. You are the knowing of love. You are forever enough.
