Or is he?
Is it the one outside who is meeting with the one inside of himself?
But the one inside is not complete.
He is just a profile line, open in the back. The mind that is around him mingles with the mind inside of his head.
He may be able to think with the mind that is outside of him.
And that is the mind that is inside of the head of the friend he is just meeting with.
But wait a minute:
This space is not inside of his new friend’s head.
It is really outside of him.
So where is the mind of his outside friend?
It seems that this is where the mind of the one who is outside, that the inside person is meeting with right now, is.
So the one inside, maybe he is only an idea? What do you say?
And the one outside?
Maybe he is the thought of the one who is inside?
So are they both real?
As real as can be,
When you are unreal.
And maybe both are one thought, appearing as two, for the purpose of having this meeting?
Just a thought
That I wanted to share.
I used to be a graphic designer and an illustrator. I became involved with the Chan Meditation Center and studied meditation and Buddhist knowledge with the late Master Sheng-yen from Taiwan. For twelve years I was in a process of deepening my meditation. I had many more experiences and insights and my life changed. After having illustrated more than 40 children’s books and writing two of them, I left this career too and went to New York University to study art therapy.
