Ippen2Illusion is this single thought-moment; enlightenment also is this single thought-moment.

Just as turning away from reality to wander in samsara is this single thought-moment of false discrimination, so overturning illusion is again this thought-moment.

If you do not attain enlightenment in this thought-moment, neither will you attain it in countless thought-moments.

—Ippen Shonin

    Enlightenment in every moment is possible. Living with wisdom and compassion with every breath is a worthy, achievable goal. In this thought moment, Ipppen’s words bring aspiration in and despair out. Breathing in and out, every chance to live in Truth….right now, not in some future explosion of lights and elevation. Breathe and elevate NOW! many thanks
