It arrived under the email subject line "HAHAHAHAHA." It appeared to come from China and its first lines were these:
And further along:I understood! I finally understood!!! There is no high, no low, no left, no right, no start, no end, no better, no worse, no here, no there, no this, no that, no happiness, no sadness.
How exciting if true. How disheartening if false. How normal, assuming it's not abnormal.And like a rongxiang whose heart momentarily saw no human beings, and no self either, and he needed his computer to email some friends, imagine that they exists. Sob.
A email friend in Mexico once sent me a note in which he mentioned in passing that his Tibetan Buddhist teacher had approved his understanding. "But let's not make too much of it," he added. To discover the wind on your face or a red rose or the laughter that accompanies a good joke ... let's not make too much of it.
Still, I am happy if it's true.
