Empty Mind...

"In Zen they say: 'Only an empty mind can see the Buddha.'

This is impossible to achieve. 

An empty mind is a 'happy accident'.  It cannot be willed. 

But! Focussing on one thing only - one thought, one breath, one movement, one sound, one image, a single word - this is called: 'Thought of One Thought.' 

...Then there is an opportunity for thoughts to cease.

We must diligently cultivate the skill of Concentration; develop the ability to Focus.

From there, Miracles can happen. 

This is called: Practice.

Hao la!"
