Zen Essence: The Science of Freedom

The Normal Mind
The Way does not require cultivation--just don't pollute it. What is pollution? As long as you have a fluctuating mind fabricating artificialities and contrivances, all of this is pollution. If you want to understand the Way directly, the normal mind is the Way. What I mean by the normal mind is the mind without artificialities, without subjective judgements, without grasping or rejection. -- Zen Master Mazu (p. 1)
