be patient

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves.

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

no ground no walls no reference

It doesn't matter what your teacher says, what a sutra says, what tradition says, or what your peers say. The doubts will continue and your efforts to allay them by appealing to authority will never settle them. You cannot settle things by relying on the dust left by others. Instead, open to your own experience of doubt. Don't hold back. No ground. No walls. No reference. Totally open. Isn't that what you were looking for?

-Ken McLeod
