Contemplation: Not holding back

After reviewing the instructions on how to practice contemplation, take up this excerpt from Kihwa's commentary on the Sutra of Perfect Enlightenment (page 75):

Although the moon does not withhold any of its luminosity, only still water can reflect it, and although the Buddha's voice is perfectly impartial, it cannot enter a scattered mind.

May all beings enjoy the merit of our practice.
