(Douglas Harding from ‘Open to the Source’, edited by Richard Lang*)
If time is taken to take facts as they are, based on present evidence rather than on belief, where is the separation between you and me to be found? What I see here is you, and (I suggest) what you see there is, in fact, me - or whoever happens to be with you. We are seen to be interdependent in actual experience, not only in Buddhist theory. The apparent separate self is nothing more than an apparition, and it is none other than the Buddha that sees this ghostly delusion for what it is. You are my 'Buddha Face.'
