A GENERAL SENSE OF BEING

from http://OceanofDharma.com Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week October 14, 2008

The sense of being can’t be one solid thing. It moves constantly. It
projects out and in, and it is very fickle. Nevertheless, there
should be some attempt to relate to the overall situation, to a sense
of the whole. It is like looking at a string of beads or an animal’s
tail. When a lot of little beads are strung together, you have a mala
or a necklace; hundreds of small hairs put together become a tail. So
there is a general sense of being, made out of lots of little things
put together.

 From “Being and Projecting,” in TRUE PERCEPTION: THE PATH OF DHARMA ART, p.77.
