There seems to be a need for us to realize that the cosmic world—the sky and mountains and trees and rivers and oceans and jungles and everything—can be woven into those persons who are interested. Those who are willing students and warriors can draw in that world and work with it. The natural situation provides us with the whole phenomenal world, and we should learn to assoicate with that… Basically there is cultivated presence and then there is naturally existing presence. When we cultivate an authentic presence, we develop a sense of what is naturally existing. So we begin to make our connection to the world in that way.
