David Carse -- from Perfect Brilliant Stillness

If ‘this,’ the world of things and ideas, is seen as what is real, as true, as ‘reality,’
then That which is completely and radically ‘not-this,’
for which there are no words or ideas within ‘this,’
will necessarily be seen as no thing, as unreal...
It is only when ‘this,’ this so-called ‘reality’
is completely understood to be dreamlike illusion
that what is ‘not-this’ will, at the same time, be seen to be What Is.
...the heart turns from the illusion of ‘this’ and opens to What Is.

-- David Carse
