Look at your authentic mind ~ Milarepa

Look at your authentic mind; this is the true view.
If you seek a view other than mind, it is like a rich person searching for wealth, O physician monk.
Do not clear away the faults of drowsiness and discursiveness; this is the true meditation.
If you clear away the faults of drowsiness and discursiveness in meditation,
it is like holding up a lamp in daytime, O physician monk.
Do not alternate acceptance and rejection; this is true action.
If you alternate accepting and rejecting in action. it is like a bee trapped in a web, O physician monk.
Rest in the confidence of the view; this is true samaya.
If you seek elsewhere, there is no fruition to attain.
It is like a frog trying to leap into the sky, O physician monk.
Inquire into your mind; this is the true guru.
If you seek for a guru other than your mind, it is like to give up your mind, O physician monk.
Therefore, all appearances are of the mind, O physician monk.
