Enlightened Quotes: Feelings

“How could the sages be without feelings? It’s just that they penetrate through them and are not beclouded by them. They have feelings, but without entanglements. With feelings, there is nowhere they do not reach. Having no entanglements, there is never any love or hate.” – 16th Century Ch’an master Zibo

(J.C. Cleary, Zibo. The Last Great Zen Master in China. Berkeley: Asian Humanities Press, 1989, 53.)
