    We all think we are living, we really eat, sleep, walk, talk. But are we really? If we were, we would never be talking about "dread," "insecurity," "fear," "frustration," "courage to be," "looking into the vacant," "facing death."

    Pure experience is the mind seeing itself as reflected in itself, it is an act of self-identification, a state of suchness.
  • Mark shared from The Buddha Eye: An Anthology of the Kyoto School and Its Contemporaries by Frederick Franck
    We can talk of limits because there is something that is not limited, that is beyond these limits and at the same time limiting itself within them. This something is not really a "something" as understood on the level of ratiocination. It is therefore a "nothing," a strange, irrational kind of nothing-a nothing that is not a nothing.
    Note: Testing the share feature from Kindle Notes and Highlights. Nice.
