"Nietzsche said: 'If you look into the abyss long enough, it looks back.' This is our practice: seeing and being seen, hearing and being heard, touching and being touched, being transformed by ten thousand things. Practice is a willingness not to continue as one has been continuing for millenniums and millenniums. It is not a carrying forward but a stopping and being touched by, to be transformed by, to be intimate with one's moment. In that kind of practice, everything is transformed and everything is saved. This is the meaning of taking refuge in the Dharma.
