We perceive Zen, the Dharma, and the Way to be outside of ourselves. But it is a serious error to create a distance between yourself and these things in this manner. If you make a separation between yourself and what you are looking for, no matter how much effort you make to lessen that distance, that effort will be in vain.
- The Essence of Zen, Sekkei Harada
Do not separate between hot and cold.
Nor between this and that.
May the force be with you
