Look at your mind

It is called wisdom (jnana) but it cannot be touched by the contriving mind. It is beyond words and ideas such as existing or not existing, permanence or annihilation. Whatever one says about it is refutable. And since wisdom is like this, even if one were to ask Buddha himself, do not think he would take one side or another. The Dharmakaya is beyond thinking. It is non-born and free from conceptual elaboration. Do not ask me–look at your mind. It is not something about which one can say, “It is like this.”     —Milarepa
