Wei Wu Wei one the Open Secret:
"Are you still thinking, looking, living, as from an imaginary phenomenal centre?
As long as you do that you can never recognise your freedom. "
"We ourselves are not an illusory part of Reality; rather are we Reality itself illusorily conceived."
“Why are you unhappy?
Because 99.9 percent of everything you think, and of everything you do, is for yourself—and there isn’t one.”
"Only an object can suffer, but phenomenally subject and object, being one whole, spin like a coin so that the intervals between pile et face (heads
and tails) are imperceptible. Consequently pain, or pleasure, appear to be continual.
Noumenally, on the contrary, there is no object to suffer pain or pleasure. Noumenon is invulnerable, and cannot be otherwise. Noumenon is the
unmanifested aspect of what we, sentient beings, are: Phenomenon is our manifestation.”
We do not possess an 'ego'.
We are possessed by the idea of one.
