In this moment

False views make up the world
true views are from the world beyond,

when true and false are both dismissed
your buddha nature will manifest

this is simply the straightforward teaching

delusion lasts countless kalpas
awareness takes but an instant.

Huineng,  638 – 713, the Sixth Patriarch of Chan Buddhism, founder of the “Sudden Enlightenment” school of Buddhism

[a  kalpa is a long period of time in Hindu and Buddhist thinking]
