Hsin Shin Ming: “69. If you can be like this, you don’t have to worry about attaining enlightenment.”
‘If you can be like this’ means ‘If you can be like what has been explained so far’. To rephrase, if you can see and hear things without discriminating, if you know what you are when your body is not you, if you can see things as they are, if you can many as one, if you can see yourself as one with everything, if you can see everything as equal, if you can see everything as neutral, if you can see everything as empty, if you are not deluded by words, if you can see only a single thing as it is, and if you hear only a single word or a sound as it is, then, you don’t have to worry about attaining enlightenment because that is no other than enlightenment.
