The best version of this for me is this clip from Harry Potter. He's all three characters in this clip, present (Harry), past lower nature (Voldemort) and future sage (Dumbledore).

Time, Space and separation from source are all illusions like death. Another good clip on this topic is Arjuna and Krishna speaking of the central mystery.

The conclusion to the Mahabharata is realization of the illusion, then the book being passed to the next generation to write.

His final revelation of the illusion comes from his own sense of duty and compassion, which is the point of fighting within the true battlefield, or the heart of the person. Relatives on the battlefield are the various divisions of outer world reflected by inner. This then mirrors the Dhammapada chapter 1, finding the one law of love and the way to that heart of compassion and duty for others. This is the essence of Buddhism, all religion and central to the mystery of existence.

The practical Pratyeka side, though not specifically Zen, helped me enormously in the (five) first years.


Words come in useful sometimes, it is said that Buddha liked to debate

The wisdom of samadhi is quite different. Higher level wisdom cannot be written down. It cannot be spoken. True wisdom is the knowledge of the universe that is beyond physical expression.
