Our perception is a combination of the gathered awareness and our mind’s subjective interpretation of the information. The present can only be wholly acknowledged when we have complete vision of both ourselves and the world around us.
Living in Zen is living with the objective clarity of the Original No-Mind. We live with the Inner Light, at full illumination, and harmoniously respond to the outer circumstances with an all embracing universal altruism.
All materialization in the natural world are the manifestation and derivation of the inherent duality of the physical universe. As citizen of the natural world, our physical form are governed by the dualistic forces of the universe. We exist within the limitations both of our physical body and of the physical universe. As we exist in the physical body, our perspective of the world is based on the our observation and experience within the physical world. Duality is the subjective state of mind, while the mind conscious assess the input from the world from an egocentric viewpoint.
