Direct Experiences

Yutang Lin

Grasping to concepts all faded away;
Direct experiences arise in one total.
As if come, yet not seen wherefrom;
Seems gone, but never go anywhere..


Buddha is called "As If Come"; as if there is some reference involved. When grasping to a self is no more, only the totality remains. Appearing at one time, without seeing where all come from. Even though disappeared, always retained in the ocean of consciousness. Any space and any time are all concurrent in the totality of oneness of all.
