Zen

Q. Master Yabo said, “When we see things around us, the Buddha doesn’t seem to exist. However, there is nothing that isn’t revealing it.” How can I see it?

A. In fact, anything on the face of the earth and even in the sky is revealing the Buddha. However, you don’t even have to understand the earth, or the universe. All you have to do is to see any single thing such as a simple spoon you use every day, or a flower in your garden just as it is, and you will see in it the Buddha that is the essence of your being.

Every moment of your search is the moment of encountering the Buddha. Every movement of your search is the function of the Buddha. The universe, including you, is merely the visible aspect of the Buddha. You can escape from the true-Self no more than you can escape from yourself.
