You are Not That - Dharma talk

What you are can never be located in time, space, or mind. What you are defies all objectification, for as the Tao Te Ching says, "The Tao that can be named is not the eternal Tao." If you can hear it, see it, smell it, think it, then that is NOT it. The true Buddhadharma is formless; it is that which precedes all subjects and objects. In order to discover your original face, eliminate all of those things that you falsely identify with as your-self. Spot them and realize that you are NOT them. They come and go according to conditions, your true nature does not. So what are you? Don't be limited by words or thoughts, for you are ultimately beyond them all.
