Open means a continuous broadness. To contain everything except nothing. The good is not so “good”, the bad is not really “bad”. Let neither the good nor the bad separate the mind. To behave the good, to avoid the bad. Ask neither the good nor the bad to break the mind.
Open means to read all phenomena with a video-eye. To watch everything objectively without discrimination. A bursting bud is a bursting bud, without attaching “lovely”. A withered flower is a withered flower, without attaching “poorly”.
Open means to embrace all kinds of emotions. Don’t expect the pleasure to stay longer, don’t try to get rid of annoyance right away. Like taking care of a baby, lay either of them in the cradle of equal awareness, and accompany their “sleeping away”.
Open means to be sincere to the causes, conditions and effects. They are honest to everything without any disguising. They are always open to us, and when we can open to them, we are sincere to ourselves and everything will open to us.
Open means to regard each person as “should-be-cared”. Everyone is interconnected and exists only in relation to each other. Don’t cling to the goodness you have done for others, don’t grasp the badness received from others. Let both of them melt into the interdependent living.
Open means to untie the bondage of suffering through understanding its way of “arising” and “ceasing”. Until when we recognize there’s no such thing as a real “birth” of suffering, the mind will be free from the conflict.
Open means that once we have a taste of the honey of freedom – the emptiness of any “independent thing” and its “inherent existence”, we are willing to share with others and hope that all the beings can taste it as early as possible.
