Living a Life to Its Fullest


 full Lotus

Quoted from the Book of Wisdom by Chan Master Wu Jue MiaoTian.





We can live our life to its fullest if we realize the existence of a real self or Buddha-nature within us. Lack of such understanding often leads to a life filled with the endless and vain pursuit of fame and fortune. In fact, material wealth will come naturally if the inner Buddha-nature is bright and pure. If the inner Buddha-nature is dark and impure, the pursuit of wealth will not succeed. The order is important-spiritual well-being first and material wealth second. The reverse rarely works.
