Throughout Christmas

Throughout Christmas

All living things are in complete realization of the Way
It is not possible to depart from the Way even for a moment
This is true throughout time and space
An iris cannot become more or less of an iris
A hawk cannot fly beyond its home
Even a rock participates in enlightenment completely
The fact that the rock does not know its own being diminishes nothing
The fact that some beings do realize our true nature increases nothing
This is the wondrous practice of non doubt
