vertical line If your concentration during meditation or Zazen is very good then
Your awareness will be clear and reflect what is in front of it
If there is nothing to obscure your mind then you will see your very nature
No mirror, no dust, perfect vision

vertical line When people talk with me they really only see what want to see, they see a reflection of their thoughts, their reality. In this way mind is a mirror, I am dropping more of myself which is not, everyday. There is rapidly becoming not enough of me to attach to

vertical line An exact unblemished reflection of all, exist in a spacious mind. The thoughts produced by a frame of reference or storyline of the self, mar the perfect reflection with observations. Yet the observation of these blemishes leads one to the ground of being one has chosen, so that then the blemish becomes the seed for awareness clear and without occlusion.
