To study the self
Is to forget the self
To forget the self,
Is to meet God.(1)


The study of the self in a misled practice brings an hypertrophy of the self,
The object of our observation swells and swells until our Being smothers.
‘To be actualized by myriad things’, entering the veins and moving down to the root of blood,
It is the statement of all genuine experiences, from disciples of all traditions.

(1) Original Version :

“To study the Buddha Way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be actualized by myriad things.
When actualized by myriad things, your body and mind as well as the bodies and minds of others drop away. No trace of enlightenment remains, and this no-trace continues endlessly.”
