Hsu Yun (1840-1959)
ON LIVING IN A CAVE OF STONE
A stone cave. That's the ultimate in cleanliness and refinement. But live alone. Don't concern yourself with the business of life. Get a round mat made of rushes. Take a meditation pose and sit.
Then, the body will become like just so many bubbles. The wheels of life will roll into timelessness. When you enter deepest meditation Your Inner Being will be wrapped in Being, Itself.
The great material world will vanish. How could those grains of sand remain?
