Experiencing is fashioning

To experience sights, sounds, smells, tastes, tactile sensations, and thoughts is to fashion sights, sounds, smells, tastes, tactile sensations, and thoughts. Sights, sounds, smells, tastes, tactile sensations, and thoughts exhaust the modes in which reality manifests. A Zen practitioner is one that continuously strives to increase their capacities to fashion these six ever-advancing streams of novel existence-time into a Buddha within a Buddha realm.
