Every step today

If you look for the truth outside yourself

It gets further and further away

Today, walking alone, I meet him everywhere I step

He is the same as me, yet I am not him

Only if you understand it in this way

will you merge with the way things are.

Dongshan, 9th Century China, Chan Buddhist monk (Stephen Mitchell translation)
