Kosho Uchiyama

‘We recognize things through abstractions in our mind or consciousness, but those conceptualized things are not the reality of life. IF we say the word fire, our tongues will not be burned. The force that is reflecting, imagining, abstracting, and conceptualizing things is the reality of life.’ (Commentary on the Bendowa)
