Q. What makes you think there is anything more, other, beyond just this?

A. Who says that there is something more beyond this? There is nothing else other than this. The problem is that we don’t see and hear this well enough. In other words, we see and hear just half of all this. The other half is said to be hidden since we cannot see and hear it. We can see and hear the other half by seeing and hearing everything just as it is. The purpose of Zen meditation is to see and hear this as it is.

Student: “Sir, I see a cup on the table. What is it that I cannot see about the cup?”

Master: “It cannot be broken.”
