Opening the Eye

From Book "Opening the Eye"

You have to open the eye of the heart, the eye that sees everything clearly.
And once you open that eye, you'll realize that you were already buddha even before creation and that you are and always will be enlightend.
That is what we mean by seeing your buddha nature, your original face.

Once you open the eye and see everything as it is, you'll realize that "mountains are mountains and waters are waters."

translated by Brian Barry
