You are kindly invited to the next Book Club meeting this Friday, August 27th at 8pm Paris time, 2 pm New York time. (Bernard will host).
We enjoy each others’ presence and welcome newcomers warmly. We start off by sharing our thoughts and reactions to a quote provided. Then we allow whatever comes up to come up.
This week’s quote is by Zen master Huang Po :
‘ All such dualistic concepts as ‘ignorant’ and ‘Enlightened’, ‘pure’ and ‘impure’, are obstructions. It is because your minds are hindered by them that the Wheel of the Law must be turned. Just as apes spend their time throwing things away and picking them up again unceasingly, so it is with you and your learning. All you need is to give up your ‘learning’, your ‘ignorant’ and ‘Enlightened’, ‘pure’ and ‘impure’, ‘great’ and ‘little’, your ‘attachment’ and ‘activity’. Such things are mere conveniences, mere ornaments within the One Mind.’
