With the slightest yes and no, Mind is lost in confusion.
What is the color of the wind? Where does the rain come from?
Heaven, earth, and I: the same root. Everything and I: one thing.
Everything is true just as it is: Why dislike it? Why hate?
Cast away Dharma, Not to mention non-Dharma.
No good thought, no evil thought.
Sitting motionless, nothing happening — Spring coming, grass growing.
Rich food doesn't tempt the man who has eaten.
All things that exist are like a dream, a phantom, a bubble, a reflection; they are like dew or lightning; thus should you view them.

Watch your own steps!

Worldly passions inseparable from satori.

Never comparable to anything: How can I preach it?
Watch all sentient beings with merciful eyes.
Once you preach, the point is gone.
Seeking words, chasing phrases: When do you have time for satori?
Seek satori within yourself! Where else?
Fire is hot; water, cold.
Not flattered by praise, not hurt by blame.
Teaching beyond teaching; No leaning on words and letters.
Need fire? Best strike a flint. Water? Dig a well.
The Billion Worlds, a bubble on the sea; All Buddhas and Patriarchs, a flash of lightning.
Coming back with satori but everything just as before: Hermit Mountain's drizzle and mist, Crooked River's waves . . .
Open your mouth— instantly wrong; Move your tongue— against the truth.
Killing or vivifying is in these hands.
Produce Mind Without attachment to anything.
One snowflake falling on a burning furnace.
Spring opens a hundred flowers — for whom?
Day after day a very good day: Winds come and trees bow.
Spring comes: grass grows.

From the origins nothing exists.
When cold say cold; When hot say hot.
He dies, I die - Where can we meet?

It rains: the earth wet.

Go a thousand miles not moving a foot!
Walking is Zen; sitting, too.
Much understand, much problem. Little understand, little problem. Complete DON'T KNOW, no problem.
