THIS existence

To experience Bodhidharma's zen, there is no need to destroy THIS existence---YOU ARE FACING suddenly realize that THIS existence, "I and that," are your original nature and that you cannot say a word about it, cannot divide THIS existence into two pieces (mind and matter). Of course in that moment, all color, all sound, everything together, disappears [as such]. This is what is known as sudden enlightenment, Bodhidharma's zen.

---from "The Zen Eye" by Sokei-an
