Hsin Shin Ming: “49. When all things are seen without differentiation, you return to the origin and remain what you are.”
‘All things are seen without differentiation’ means to see all things as they are, or to see without discrimination. ‘Return to the origin’ means to realise that everything is empty and that you are also emptiness itself. ‘Remain what you are’ means not to strive any more to escape from what you are by realising that you are perfection itself as emptiness.
So, this scripture signifies that if you can see everything as it is without discrimination, you come to stop struggling to escape from what you are and go to paradise or heaven by realising that you are already there.
Student: “How can I return to the origin?”
Master: “Where is the word ‘origin’ from?”
Student: “From my mouth.”
Master: “Go into your mouth.”
