The sutra
Present awareness and comparative awareness
Yen T'ou said, "In the future, if you want to propagate the great teaching, it must flow out point by point from within your own breast to cover heaven and earth: Only then will it be the action of a man of power." That which flows out from one's own breast, as he calls it, is one's own beginningless present awareness, fundamentally complete of itself. As soon as you arouse a second thought, you fall into thinking. Awareness is something from before your parents were born.
This affair is not a matter of intelligence or acuity. Actually, it's just an abrupt bursting out that's the criterion. As soon as you've attained this scene, then whatever words you have, they're established. When where they're established is real, this is the so-called "Flowing out from within one's own breast to cover heaven and earth."
