Reflection 737


Welcome!

In all sincerity and simplicity

I find it very easy to see what I'm looking out of at this moment. I can see what I am looking at, which is all your faces, etc. And I am seeing what I am looking out of here and noticing how different it is in my chair from what it is in your chair. I'm talking now in extremely simple language––I hope simple language––about something supremely and utterly simple. It's not about ideas, it's not about Buddhism, it's not about religion or spirituality. I'm talking about something utterly factual, ordinary, baby-like, childish if you like. I am talking about what is given to me at this moment when I stop thinking. In all sincerity and simplicity, I find here nothing in your way. When I look not only at you, at what I am looking at there, but at myself which I am looking out of, I find that I am looking out of nothing whatever... Here I am capacity for you. I am full of you. You are in me and there is just nothing here in your way. I am looking out of a no-face here at your face. The situation is entirely asymmetrical. From the talk 'Enlightenment and Social Responsibility', given by Douglas Harding to the London Buddhist Society in 1972.
