In Zen you are coming from nowhere and you are going to nowhere. You
are just now, here, neither coming nor going. Everything passes by
you; your consciousness reflects it but it does not get identified.
When a lion roars in front of a mirror, do you think the mirror roars?
Or when the lion is gone and a child comes dancing, the mirror
completely forgets about the lion and starts dancing with the
child--do you think the mirror dances with the child? The mirror does
nothing, it simply reflects. Your consciousness is only a mirror.
Neither do you come, nor do you go. Things come and go. You become
young, you become old; you are alive, you are dead. All these states
are simply reflections in an eternal pool of consciousness.
