-------------------- Bassui wrote the following letter to one of his disciples who was about to die:
"The essence of your mind is not born, so it will never die. It is not an existence, which is perishable. It is not an emptiness, which is a mere void. It has neither color nor form. It enjoys no pleasures and suffers no pains.
"I know you are very ill. Like a good Zen student, you are facing that sickness squarely. You may not know exactly who is suffering, but question yourself: What is the essence of this mind? Think only of this. You will need no more. Covet nothing. Your end which is endless is as a snowflake dissolving in the pure air."
Root canal tomorrow. Been waiting for antibiotics to help with the pain as I need this tooth I can't have it extracted if I want to continue it to eat normally so I got antibiotics and am toughing it until the root canal..... I was up a solid 3 days straight from the pain. As someone who has never done any type of speed or stayed up let alone 24 hours before, I can honestly say the experience was.....unpleasant. tomorrow can not come fast enough.....
