Hsin Shin Ming: “65. Infinitely large and infinitely small, there is no difference, for definitions have vanished and no boundaries can be discerned.”

Hsin Shin Ming: “65. Infinitely large and infinitely small, there is no difference, for definitions have vanished and no boundaries can be discerned.”

An infinitely large thing is not different from an infinitely small thing because both of them are empty illusions. ‘Definitions have vanished and no boundary can be discerned’ means to have realised that all definitions and boundaries are just empty imaginary lines.

When there is no boundary, there is neither inside nor outside. When there is neither inside nor outside, the smallest thing is bound to be the same as the largest thing since the smallest thing has no inside and the largest thing has no outside. In summary, when we are not deluded by illusionary labels such as large and small, the true-Self reveals itself before our eyes.

Student: “Which is the larger of the two, you or the mountain?”
Master: “I don’t know.”
