Buddhaspace offers us a great quote from Master Xu Yun in today’s post:

Step outside of time just once, and all the years you spent in ignorance and suffering recede into vagueness. They’re only something you seem to remember. Your old small self is gone and all his old enemies and friends and relatives and all his old experiences, bitter or sweet, have lost their power over him. They were like a cinema show…believable while he was in the theater, but not when he came out into the daylight. Reality destroyed the illusion.
In Nirvana you’re neither young nor old. You just are. And who are you? That’s easy.
The Buddha.

Can it be that simple? If we can Know that there is never anything other than this moment we are offered amazing opportunities to awaken with all beings? Nice.
