The straightforward mind differs from speaking straightforwardly (GDD-704)
The quote "Straightforward mind is the seat of enlightenment" from the Platform Sutra first appeared in the Vimalakirti Sutra. It means that any place is the right place for us to practice, and any time is a good time for us to practice. As long as our mind is free of distorted thoughts, erroneous views, and other vexations, and is full of integrity and right views, without any reluctance, laxity, and crookedness, this state of mind is the "straightforward mind".
