Enlightenment?
The light is already on.

An open heart
can become more spacious.

Where is the key
To a closed one?

Be like water,
it does not strain itself.

Be awake now!
It takes less time.

A flower does not talk,
We could do the same.

The golden orioles fly through the sky,
They leave no prints.

The reed’s shadows sweep the water,
There is no ripple.

Stirring a thought
You totally miss it.

Relax!

There is no moment
Like this moment.

A scowl or a smile?
Which is more effort?

Blessed are those

Who do not exert themselves.

Peak experience?
What goes up
Goes down!

Rejoice at the happiness of others,

It is an easy way to be happy.

Time is timeless.
No need to rush.

 

 

Lazy Guide - Image 14

 

 

 

 

Be enlightened by all things,

Just look, just listen.

 

Lazy Guide - Image 15

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep your life simple.
It is less trouble.

 

 

Lazy Guide - Image 16

 

 

 

 

 

The Great Way is not difficult,

For those who do not pick and choose.

 

Lazy Guide - Image 17

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Searching for the truth,
It has never gone away.

 

 

Lazy Guide - Image 18

 

 

 

 

 

Time is running out.

Don’t run after it.

 

Lazy Guide - Image 19

 

 

 

 

 

Share your happiness,
It is a free gift.

 

 

Lazy Guide - Image 20

 

 

To all those who prefer to walk
When told to run.

To all those who prefer to lie down
When told to stand up.

 

Lazy Guide - Image 21

 

 

 

 

A bee gathers pollen,
The delicate blossom
Is left untouched.

 

 

Lazy Guide - Image 22

 

 

 

 

Confusion!

Whos is there to be confused?

 

Lazy Guide - Image 23

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enlightenment is out there!

 

 

Lazy Guide - Image 24

 

 

Grasping is futile, rejecting is painful;
Care lightly and gently,

Like a mother holding a child,
Not too loose, not too tight.
