Focus on Four Things

Book coverO monks, you should focus on four things. What are these four? To focus on the teachings and not focus on the individual; to focus on the meaning and not focus on the words; to focus on timeless awareness and not focus on ordinary consciousness; and to focus on the definitive meaning and not focus on the meaning that guides. These four things are things to be realized; they are not four kinds of spiritual individuals.
