Out of nowhere

The Diamond Sutra says,

“Out of nowhere, the mind comes forth.”

Working With the Koan : Usually people work hard to make things happen. Yet it might be that things happen by themselves, coming out of nowhere. When you forget your carefully assembled fiction of who you are, you can find a natural delight in people, in the planet, the stones, and the trees. There is no observable limit to this beauty, and no one is excluded from it.
