All things are illusory; when you create, it is an illusion, and when you receive, it is an illusion. When you are conscious, it is an illusion, and when you are confused, it is an illusion. Past, present, and future are all illusions. If today you discover your faults, use the illusory medicine to cure the illusory sickness. When the sickness is gone and you no longer need the medicine, you will still be the same person. If, aside from this, there is still another person or Dharma, then it is the view of devils and heretics. Think deeply about this.

Ta-hui (1089-1163)
