From ‘The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching’, by Thich Nhat Hanh

book_clouds“While reading or listening, don’t work too hard. Be like the earth. When the rain comes, the earth only has to open up to the rain. Allow the rain of the Dharma to come in and penetrate the seeds that are buried deep in your consciousness. A teacher cannot give you the truth. The truth is already in you. You only need to open yourself – body, mind, and heart -so that his or her teachings will penetrate your own seeds of understanding and enlightenment.”
