單純地將心敞開
 
人們經常犯一種錯誤,認為修行包含了某種想要將了知的特質消融到空性里的企圖。他們試著去製造一種空無一物的狀態,而非單純地讓這個意識、這個了知的心任其自然。你唯一需要做的,就只是讓這個了知和醒覺的氣氛被空性滲透進來,就像讓濕氣慢慢滲進來一樣。這不是說你要刻意地把你的餐巾泡在水里,只是坐在那裡放空而什麼都不知道。反而,比較是一種松坦地放鬆意識的感覺。然後,完全是自動發生的,濕氣滲進來了。我們當下的認知特質──就只是任其自然,然後讓空的特質慢慢變明顯。從經驗來談,大師們說這只是以一種輕柔的方式來敞開。

Simply opening up
 
People often make a mistake in thinking that the training consists of an attempt to dissolve this knowing quality into emptiness. They try to make nothingness, rather than just leaving this consciousness, this knowing mind, to itself. All you actually need is to let this knowing and awake atmosphere be permeated with emptiness, like allowing the moisture to slowly seep in. It's not that you have to deliberately dunk your napkin into the water, to just sit there spaced out and not know anything. Rather, it's more a sense of releasing the conscious quality, loosely. Then, all by itself, the moisture permeates. Our present cognizant quality—just let it be, and then slowly let the empty quality be evident. Speaking from experience, the masters describe this as simply opening up in a very gentle way.
