Even Siddhartha Could Never Explain It

…all things have mutual identity
…all have interdependent origination.

Mountain, river, grass blade spider web, bridge:
not simply related, not simply part of the same thing,
not similar.  Rather, they are identical to each other in every respect.

The Buddha could never explain it.


It’s already your life.  The problem is that it is obscured, buried under layers of conditioning, under habitual ways of using our minds.

Since it cannot be explained,
You have to see it to actualize it.

So, What do you see?
