To be free of the discriminating is to manifest miraculous awareness-awareness that is miraculously simple, miraculously unadorned.
Being attached is what prevents us from seeing, it is what clouds this miraculous awareness.
We might think we can find a buddha or enlightenment somewhere beyond this mind; we might think we can find serenity, clarity, and meaning beyond this mind, but such place does not exist. Everything that appears is this mind, Bodhidharma says.
Buddha nature is not something that we possess, nor is it something we can be. It is the nature of things, just as they are. To realize our buddha nature, to live in accord with this awakening, is the truth that alleviates suffering in the world.
Mind is buddha. This is not our brain; it's not our head.
