Brilliant Clear Seeing

This is exactly the experience that we experience when we express, in the Zen tradition, “There is nothing outside of Mind. And yet, there is no mind.” The nature of everything is consciousness itself, right down to the vibration of subatomic particles. There is nothing “outside“ of this realm of possibility.

And yet, what you take to be your “mind“, is not really “you”: as I often say, just as the shadow of the hand is not really the truth of the hand itself, but only a simulacrum, temporary appearance, fragile, and unstable, and non-self existent phenomenon.

Easy and clear. So, fortified with this very real insight, from moment to moment (you can) just do it, with no hindrance.
