OBJECTIVITY AND SUBJECTIVITY
Things have never declared themselves empty, nor have they declared
themselves form; and they have not declared themselves right, wrong,
defiled or pure. Nor is there a mind that binds and fetters people.
It is just because people themselves give rise to vain and arbitrary
attachments that they create so many kinds of opinions, and give rise
to many various likes and fears.
Just understand that things do not originate of themselves. All of them
come into existence from your own single mental impulse of imagination
mistakenly clinging to appearances.
If you know that mind and objects fundamentally do not contact each other,
you will be set free on the spot. Everything in a state of quiescence right
where it is; this is the very site of enlightenment.

Ch'an master Pai-chang
