"She saw that arising arose, abided, and fell away... She saw that knowing this arose, abided, and fell away. Then she knew there was nothing more than this, no ground... nothing to lean upon at all, and no one leaning, and she opened the clenched fist in her mind and let go and fell into the midst of everything."
Abbess Teijitsu
from "Women of the way" by Sallie Tisdale
