The Path

Lightening flashes, sparks shower, in one blink of your eyes you have missed seeing.
When the mind is enlightened, the spirit is freed and the body matters not.
You must complete the journey you have begun.
Only then will you be able to find the Great Path.
Release your burden.
One cannot reach enlightenment by running from death.
Many roads lead to the Great Path, but only the willing will find their way.
The river tells no lies, though standing on the shore, the dishonest man still hears them.
The future is never certain, but you saved many without regard for your own life.
You can never reach enlightenment if you do not believe you are worthy!
Because it is so clear, it takes a long time to realize it...
If you immediately know the candlelight is fire, the meal was cooked a long time ago.
The success or failure of your deeds does not add up to the sum of your life.
Your Spirit cannot be weighed.
Judge yourself by the intention of your actions,
And by the strength with which you faced the challenges that have stood in your way.
The Universe is vase, and we are so small...

There is only one thing we can ever truly control-
Whether we are good, or whether we are evil.
Anyone can reach enlightenment-
Anyone prepared to open their mind as you did when you began.
Walking the Path brings great responsibility.
You cannot fear it nor hesitate in your resolve.
