Proposition 5

Postby waechter418 » Mon Jun 26, 2017 8:44 pm

One cannot change oneself - but one can realise oneself.

Hui-Neng* called Selfrealisation, the realisation of one’s own mind essence.

One can change oneself but patience and willpower are required in order to do so
Because it is gradual and slow so does not happen immediately but over a lifetime
A MIND IS LIKE A PARACHUTE : IT DOES NOT WORK UNLESS IT IS OPEN

The following spelling might change the perspective

One cannot change Oneself - but one can realise Oneself.
