From the very non-beginning, our mind is split into pieces, which can be called “false mind”. But the “real mind” has always been intact. When the false mind is unified, the real mind is recovered.
The mind is split not by cutting but by attachments.
When we are going to do one thing, there’s an intention to attach more things around, so that the mind has to wander unsteadily. Because we think “just doing one thing at this moment is not good enough” or “there are always more meaningful things to be done”. We forget that anything to be done has to start at this moment of now.
When we are looking at one thing, we are attaching it with our individualized standards of judgment. We are separated from “it is what it is “; we are staying with our own definition. With the changing of circumstance (surrounding and emotion), the definition has never been the same.
When something is happening to us, we always respond as what we imagine to be happening. We can recall the similar memory in a lightening speed, and reflect to the happening of now as soon as possible. We are screened off from what is really happening!
We must unify ourselves into the reality of the moment of now, without any attachment. When everything can expose the real face before you, the causes and conditions will tell what you should do for the next moment…
