There is absolutely nothing you can do with your mind to awaken

Zen Flash

The ordinary mind can never know the Self.

The Self can never be known by the ordinary mind.
Therefore what is the solution?
More sadhana? More intense meditation?
No. The solution is to have a cup of tea, to relax.
The metaphor ‘to have a cup of tea’
really means to let go.Stop thinking about it. Relax completely.
The Self will make itself known to you in its own time.
You really do not have to do anything.When you practice intense sadhana
it will lead you to a quiet mind,
but it will never lead you to complete realization,
for the ordinary mind can never be realized.

There is absolutely nothing
you can do with your mind to awaken.

It can make you more peaceful.
Therefore you have to learn to relax,
let go, to become desireless.
