When the world knows beauty as beauty, ugliness arises
When it knows good as good, evil arises
Thus being and nonbeing produce each otherTTC 2 (Lin)
When we experience anything as a specific thing, we create a dualistic world. Can anyone experience life as a happening?
If we did experience life as if it were merely phenomena, what would be the point of all of us here? We would be no different than water or air if that were the case.
We are here to experience all of life as a unique critique on all creation because water already experiences life as pure essence.
Air experiences life as pure essence.
Humans experience life as pure being, and being is this and that some days.
