Words are only for distinctions,
and so there cannot really even be a symbol,
not even an idea, of the non-distinction.
We cannot think it, but we can feel it,
though we do not feel it like an object.
You feel you are alive, that you are conscious,
but you do not know what consciousness is because consciousness is present
in every conceivable kind of experience.
It is like the space in which we live,
which is everywhere.
It is like a fish in water;
the fish does not know it is in the water,
because it never leaves it.
