#29.To find yourself is to lose yourself

Famous Japanese Zen Master Hashida used to repeat over and over:
” To discover awakening is to discover your true self
  To discover your true self is to meditate & practice Zen
  To meditate & practice Zen is to study your own self
  To study your own self is to forget your self”

 

In short: “To find yourself is to lose yourself”​.

Thanks.
