Deer Guts on a Door Knob

'And I imagine...with great pleasure...all the horrible stirrings of the nonmanifested to bring forth the scream which creates the universe. Maybe one day i'll see you trembling, and you'll go into convulsion and grow larger and smaller until your mouth opens and the world will come from your mouth, escaping through the window like a river, and it will flood the city. And then we'll begin to live.'

When One Imagines Itself To Be Anything Other Than One

"So how do we go about seeing through the illusion of this false notion of the self? How do we generate the insight that would directly contradict that form of perception? Nagarjuna says that if a "self","I", or person exists as we normally assume it to exist, if it exists as we falsely view it, then the more we look at it, the more we search for its essence, the referent behind our terms and labels, then the clearer it should become. But that is not the case. If we were to search for the self or person as we normally perceive it, then it disappears, it sort of disintegrates, and this is an indication that such a notion of self was an illusion from the start. Because of this point, one of Nagarjuna's students, Aryadeva, stated in his "Four Hundred Verses on the Middle Way" that it is our ignorant conception of consciousness which is the seed of samsara (cyclic existence) and that things and events are its objects of grasping and apprehension. And it is only through seeing through the illusion of such a conception that we will be able to put an end to the process of existence."

Structure in the Chamber

'Awakening is not a thing. It's not a goal, not a concept. It is not something to be attained. It is a metamorphosis. If the caterpillar thinks about the butterfly it is to become, saying "And then I shall have wings and antennae", there will never be a butterfly. The caterpillar must accept its own disappearance in its transformation. When the marvelous butterfly takes wing, nothing of the caterpillar remains.'
