The Zen Master Hoshin lived in China many years. Then he returned to the northeastern part of Japan, where he taught his disciples. When he was getting very old, he told them a story he had heard in China. This is the story:
One year on...
Have you been listening at all? Not to anyone or anything fixed? Just listening?
If you have not, try do it once and see how wonderful it is!
You will hear not only some voices or sounds or noises but also hear the source of all sounds, and your mind really becomes quiet without any efforts to make it silent.
At this moment, your mind is totally free from the known accumulated from your childhood. There is no more any division by thoughts.
In this state, everything and your mind are really oneness, by nature, without any bonds or ties.
In this state, everything and yourself are like the net of bright stars in which each and every of them reflect each other without any obstruction and endlessly in the brightness and immensity of the whole universe.
They are listening to each other and moving together like the rivers in the ocean...
