The Blue Cliff Record

‘Yunmen spoke to his assembly and said, “Everyone has their own light. If they try to see it, everything is darkness. What is everyone’s light?”
No-one in the assembly spoke, so he answered himself, “The halls and the gate.” He also added, “A good thing does not compare with no thing.” (Case 81)

What does your light look like? Is it as good as no thing? Keep looking.
