Once in a Blue Moon …. ;)
When we really want to understand something we have to be that thing. In deep meditation, the distintion between subject and object vanishes.
We have to train ourselves to be able to do this. We are used to saying that the body is not the mind, and that the mind is the subject of inquiry, the knower. The mind wants to know the body, and the body is the object. But according to the principle I mentioned, cognition is possible only with subject and object together, and both are born at the same time. It is like the moment you have the right side, you have the left side. That is why the Buddha said [in the Satipatthana Sutta], “Contemplation of the body in the body. Contemplation of the feelings in the feelings.” The frontier between subject and object is removed, and then understanding, penetration, becomes possible.” —Thich Nhat Hanh, from The Path of Emancipation (via smirkingbuddha)
