The morning star a stone hitting bamboo a monk beaten by a broom hikers intruding mountain solitude why do you need always an outside object to realize the truth?

That completely negated awareness bringing forth complete accepted awareness, that is what we call satori. Our mind becomes paralyzed by the outer world and we loose our sense of amazement, falling into concepts, and get confused by greed, hate and anger, which again is the source of all crimes, they are all based on these three poisons. To liberate society we need to guide people to truly settle their ego, and for liberation from the confusion created by the three poisons, we need to at least once let go of the division between self and other. That mind which keeps dividing into two, that is what we negate. And from there we can experience this pure mind free from any dualism, and see the world for the first time with these fresh eyes. We see the whole world as our own truth, that is satori, and from there we move one step closer to the truth of liberation of all humans.
