Every now and then echoes of Sunyata doctrine (of no self) ripple through the space-of-awareness that I am.  Here’s a recent echo of Sunyata that popped into this mind after a few minutes of meditation.

A deluded mind sees itself even in pitch darkness.

An enlightened mind can’t find itself even in broad daylight.

“Whose words are these?  Where do they come from?  Who thought this?” mind searched itself for answers and found none.  And meditation continued.
