The fundamental delusion

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there. -Yasutani Roshi, Zen master (1885-1973)

When we are striving we know only striving, a need to be better than someone or something, and we see conflict everywhere.  This means the only thing to overcome is the view of separateness.  Through the act of “being”, we know everyone is us and separateness is the illusion.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
