The mind as free and vast

More on letting go of the normal importance we give to our thoughts.

Emptiness here means a way of perceiving in which one simply notes “There is this”,  without adding the presuppositions we usually add to experience in order to make sense of it.

Go straight to the empty and free and vast, 
With no pondering what to think. 

The previous thought is already extinct, 
The following thought does not arise, 
The present thought is itself empty.

T’aego, 1301 – 1382. Korean Seon (Zen) Master
