If there is something, and we possess that something, it is the greatest lying if we say we do not conceive it.
But if there is no anything, and we claim there is something, it is foolish.
Buddhism is not the teaching that make you lie to yourself.
It doesn't teach us, there are eyes, but please don't conceive it.
If you have it, of course we should conceive it.
But if you don't it, how do you conceive?
We have this mindset that buddhahood is only realized when you have died. When you don't have this body, at that moment you don't have eyes, you don't have ear, etc.
But Siddharta Gautama achieved buddhahood when he was 35/36. All Buddha great disciples realize their arhat, when they are still alive, with their eyes, nose, ears, etc. still intact.
But why when your eyes are still intact, nose, ears are there you can't conceive that?
Are you stroke or something?
The one that make you have eyes is not these 2 white and black balls. But it is your concept that say that as eyes, that mislead you to perceive as if you have eyes.
If you see the mirage, the mirage deceive you there is water there.
Similarly, if you see something with label, that label can deceive you there is self there.
How does label deceive us?
If we really look carefully, label is put on the basis. But we are not consistent.
My basis is always changing every moment, but my label never change!
Because of that, you trap yourself with something permanent.
Why? Because what you see is your labeling. And your labeling cover your insight or make you forget that the basis actually is always changing.
Once you make a label on some basis, you jail yourself to the fixity through that constant label.
If you want to be consistent, be fair.
If you basis is changing, you should change your label as well.
Since any basis which is impermanent is always changing at every second, your label must change at every second.
If we can do it, we have a hope to see that actual reality which is untrapped by the constant label.
The best thing to do is actually to strip off the label completely. Free yourself from any label.
Experience yourself the true impermanence without any concept.
You will see there, it is in fact foolish to even think we have 2 eyes, nose, etc. at this moment.
When in your experience, you cannot find by specific character, the appearance of eyes really can deceive us to conceive there are something called eyes.
Another aspect that close our ability to see we don't have eyes are actually the rate of changing is extremely slow. It really fool us. If you see the mirror, you will see your eyes never change.
This can fool us, but if you take the photo and compare, you can see there is nothing specific in the eyes.
When there are nothing specific, what can you conceive as such and such?
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!
