If we believe in Buddha and Mara this is due to our dualistic consciousness constantly at work. From the origin nothing exists. Yet because we don't know this, we follow shadows around. That state of mind that holds onto nothing is our true master.
Masaoka Shiki thought that Zen was about being prepared to die in every moment. Then he realized: when suffering and challenged, how to live then, that is Zen.
If we can live with pure awareness in our life, we can stay with this full inner energy at work. No awareness added as things appear and disappear.
You can only be a true leader and work for others when your eye is clear.
