Whatever you are doing, twenty-four hours a day, in all your various activities, there is something that transcends the Buddhas and Zen Masters; but as soon as you want to understand it, it’s not there.

It’s not really there; as soon as you try to gather your attention on it, you have already turned away from it.

That is why I say you see but cannot do anything about it.
