It’s all already here

Not till your thoughts cease all 
their branching here and there, 
Not till you abandon all thoughts 
of seeking for something,
Not till your mind is motionless 
as wood or stone, will you be 
on the right road to the Gate.

Huang Po, died 850, influential Chinese Chan master
