Before we experience pure existence or our true being for the first time, we firmly believe that we are the small existence of our ego. But in fact, there is a true existence in every one of us, which has always been there, but that we have never been able to recognize. This pure existence is called Buddha-nature in the East.
If one lives from that small existence of the ego, life will be permanently full of suffering, problems, struggle, worries and darkness. But if one lives in the pure existence, the DAO, one will live in deep peace and absolute freedom.
Take a step back from your judgement
of what you like and don’t like,
and you will discover how things really are.
