The Buddha, The Dharma, The Sangha

Another View, part 2

How often do we look at something and see it for what it truly is?  What does it mean, to deeply look?  To deeply listen?  To deeply taste?
How can we wholesomely integrate the ego self, so that our actions are motivated from the True Self, from compassion and wisdom?  
How can we understand that a mountain is a mountain, then not a mountain, then finally a mountain?
What happens when we rest in not knowing?
And who is it that asks these questions?

The Buddha said, with our thoughts we create the world.
