Perennial Mysticism

This is the Tao of the Buddha, available to all who desire freedom from suffering, identical to the Way of Epictetus:

To practice silent meditation in an effort not to attain Enlightenment or gain any metaphysical knowledge, but to strip away all desire, which is the cause of all suffering, and to encounter the original state of nonthinking.

Amidst all of the teachings of the world, this Dharma is to be practiced, and nothing is to be believed. Such also is the Way of Christ, where the Way is to be practiced, for the practice of the Way is indeed Faith and Faith the practice of the Way, and nothing is to be believed.

Quiet your thoughts and behold your Original Face before you were born.

Before Enlightenment: chop wood, carry water. After Enlightenment: chop wood, carry water.

To those who do not desire freedom from suffering, do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
