‘Consciousness exists only within your living activity. So if you want to understand your human consciousness, you have to do something. That is Zen practice. You practice letting your body and mind go deeper and deeper, back down the twelve links of causation, just passing them by one by one, until finally, at the bottom of the third link, you reach alayavijnana and directly experience the flowing energy of universal life, the constant movement of life itself. Then you can understand what human consciousness really is.’ (The Light That Shines Through Infinity)
