Original Face

Poem by Zen Master Seung Sahn

Your true self is always shining and free.
Human beings make something and enter the ocean of suffering.
Only without thinking
can you return to your true self.
The high mountain is always blue.
White clouds coming, going.

Follow speech, lose your life.
Follow meaning go to hell.
Open your eyes-what do you see now? What do you hear now?
Original face and truth already appear in front of you.
