Chapter 10: The Bridge but Not the Water Flows

Seeing this, the Buddha leaves his palace. Seeing this, the Mahavira leaves his kingdom - seeing this, that “This is not what I own, so why bother about it? It has to be taken away, one day or other, so why be unnecessarily anxious about it?”

And where you are is where you are not.

Have you watched it? Where are you? People are in their bodies - there you are not. People are in their minds - and there you are not. Your reality is somewhere else beyond the body and behind the mind.

Meditate over these lines.

All profound truths are paradoxical. Hence I call Zen the path of paradox.

Enough for today.
