Something Wise

About: ** picture credits ** (via flikr)

If you look for the truth outside yourself,
it gets farther & farther away.
Today, walking alone,
I meet him everywhere I step.
He is the same as me,
yet I am not him.
Only if you understand it in this way
will you merge with the way things are.
- Tung-shan
(from my zen calendar)

I think this somewhat agrees with Seth's version of what "truth" is. I could be wrong however.
