Wu Hsin -" Me"

“Me” must be seen to be imagination. If “me” is imagination, Then all the “of me’s”, that is, All the “mine’s”, are likewise imagination. When the situation is examined thoroughly, It is discerned that there is no basis for Selecting one appearance out of the totality and Labelling it as ”me”. As such, there is no “me” who receives enlightenment. When there is no one home to accept the delivery, What can be delivered? The answer cannot be located by thinking. How many more months, years or decades will it take Until you see the futility of this approach? What you are is not conceivable or perceivable. And you cannot try to deny it by declaring “I am not”. Stop trying to quench this thirst By drinking the sound of water. Turn away from thinking. There is no need for practices per se. Just ponder the words of Wu Hsin and Try to grasp their full meaning. This is sufficient for returning. Returning means going back to The source and support of everything and Resting there. In that, the misconception that There ever was a thinker, a doer, A perceiver and an enjoyer simply disappears. Sooner or later you are bound to discover that If you really want to end the searching, You must return the way that you came. This is what Wu Hsin advises. It is the way he traveled and he invites you to take it. The rest is up to you. You can never find the truth because This “you” as an entity is a lie. A lie can never reveal what is true. It is like living with an ash in your eye. You can never see clearly. For you to see things as they really are Requires the removal of this “ash”, Which is the cessation of One’s preoccupation with a seeming self.
