It’s hard to know how to discover our fundamental nature, and hard to function through it, because we’ve also been giving equal (or more) weight to the things we can see and label. This is natural, and not something to get upset about. But, once you become aware of this issue, start by relaxing the urge to grasp onto things. Let go of everything, and entrust it all to your true nature. Then, when things begin to settle down, your true nature can come to the surface. Now your practice can really begin!
My one mind is the Bodhisattva of Compassion,
so I return to my one mind and rely upon it.
Virtue and merit, upright behavior, and actions in harmony with the Dharma
are all done through mind.
I vow to attain these without delay.
