Reality alone exists

- and that we are. All the rest is only a dream, a dream of the One Mind, which is our mind without the 'our'. Is it so hard to accept? Is it so difficult to assimilate and to live?

Wei Wu Wei, from Why Lazurus Laughed

The Essential Nature of Mind

No words can describe it
No example can point to it
Samsara does not make it worse
Nirvana does not make it better
It has never been born
It has never ceased
It has never been liberated
It has never been deluded
It has never existed
It has never been nonexistent
It has no limits at all

It does not fall into any kind of category.

We are the answer

We take long trips. We puzzle over the meaning
of a painting or a book, when what we're wanting
to see and understand in this world - we are that.

- Rumi, version by Coleman Barks from Open Secret
