The Vinaya master said:
-Most people do that.
The Zen master... continue...

vertical line No vastness - No reality; No non-vastness - No non-reality. If when we contemplate such questions, is when we're stuck. Any answer will not surfice, but only add to the illusion of vastness, of reality: Both subjectively relative.

vertical line Ok, ok... the vastness of reality is where what you hear overrides what you say, goes through all the channels and you just witness them. You are a flower. Or I am. Water?
