Whilst we remain – absorbed and embedded within our own experience
Our perception of our world is deceptive
To the extent that we experience a visceral reaction to any suggestion that our experiences are actually illusory.
However, should we examine the nature of existence, as it appears to us
We shall find no actual substantiality to anything.
And, with this recognition, of our apparent paradox
We can start to dislodge our habitual familiarity
That entraps us… all.
The two extremes, of existence and non-existence
Can be reconciled within the understanding of Buddha’s intention
That all phenomena exist in total dependence upon the mind
They are in a dependent relationship
Whose paradox can be realised
