Katagiri Roshi

‘What we call the conscious world is nothing but a provisional picture of the world produced by our dualistic minds. Is there anything wrong with our provisional pictures? I don’t think so. If we think the world is just something imaginary or provisional, it appears to have no value and we become pessimistic. But remember, the conscious world is also time; our provisional pictures are beings in Buddha’s world. So why don’t you try to accept them that way and deal with them as Buddha? Try to see the provisional world reflected in the big mirror of reality, not your egoistic telescope.’ (Each Moment is the Universe)

This strikes me as a great modern-day take on the essential issue of the Diamond Sutra.
