One or Two?

June 28, 2013

book coverIf we say the world is One, we ignore relative reality, and the multitudinous universe of rocks, streams, people, and cormorants. If we say the world is Two, we are ignoring the single underlying nature of all things. Is the world One or Two? The answer would seem to be:

        How wonderful! How wonderful!

        This is One! This is Two!

From The One Taste of Truth: Zen and the Art of Drinking Tea by William Scott Wilson, page 83.
