Hsin Shin Ming: “68. One is everything and everything is not different from one.”
As mentioned many times before, one means the true-Self, or Emptiness and everything means forms. This is another expression of ‘Emptiness is forms and forms are not different from Emptiness’ in the Heart Sutra.
The problem is that we have been so addicted to forms, the names of everything created by human beings that we are deluded into thinking that everything is one thing and the true-Self is another.
In fact, everything is to the true-Self as winds are to air. That is, just as air is all winds and all winds are not different from air. So, it is said that everything is from the same root.
Student: “How can I see the true-Self?”
Master: “To see things is to see the true-Self.”
