Me in the World

When a kettle is connected to the power source,
It heats the water for tea.
That is to say, it functions.
There is no entity inside that can be called the heater.
It is no different for you.
You are an instrument, when in contact with Power,
With the Energy,
You function.
There is no one functioning.
In this sense, you will never succeed in
Freeing yourself from the conditioning of
Your own thought because
“You” is the conditioning.
When you see this for what it is,
It loses its force, its power over you.
Wu Hsin does not suggest that it disappears;
The seemingness may continue
But its reality is now transparent.
The experiencing structure requires a narrative to
Support and substantiate it.
It is titled “Me in the world”.

(from Mindless Understanding)
