[1] (3) The Subjective Existence does never exist, and the Objective Existenth is just the Universe, which is just the Universe at the present moment.

In the case of Nagarjna, the Truth is just our Action at the present moment.

Ideas can never be the Truth.

Sense perception can never be the Truth.

The Truth is just our Action at the present moment.

Therefore the Truth can never exists at the past.

The Truth can never exist in future.

And even though the concepts of the present moment can exists at the past, the present, and the future, the Real Truth of Action can exsist only at the present moment.

[1] (3) The Subjective Existence does never exists, and the Objective Existence does never exists.

Because the Real Action to go is included into the state of going,

How is it necessary for the name of going to be praduced intentionally?

The State that something is going on, might be separated,

Then anything might not appear at all.

Dear Roshi:

Is it correct to view this as the truth is merely the manifestation of the universe and our current actions? If so, are we taught by the truth if we have correct mindfulness? Would it be correct then that we may benefit from and learn from the truth constantly, as if learning is always available to us?

Dear Ven. Brandon San,

It is true that the truth is merely the manifestation of the universe and our current actions.

Therefore, if we are balanced in the Autonomic Nervous System, it is possible for us to be taught by the Truth.

However. if we are mindful,or having the stronger SNS, we are too much spiritual, and so we have to lose the balanced state of Autonomic Nervous System.

Therefore it is always necessary for us to keep our ANS balanced, and so it is necessary for us to maintain the equality between our SNS and PNS.

The mindfulness suggests a little stronger SNS than PNS, and so it is not adequate for us to keep it, and if we want to have the equality between SNS and PNS, it is necessary for us to have the equality between SNS and PNS by practicing Zazen, and so forth.
