"Most religions emphasize on reincarnation which results in cases of past life memories. Science says we came from cells and evolution. But where do cells come from? The Chan (Zen) technique in meditation focuses on questioning the mind "Who?" or "Who is reciting?" or "Who was I before I was born?" Have you questioned your own identity yet?"

"What if the world is as invisible as the empty space? Resembling a peaceful state of mind. How do we cope with our sufferings? Sorrow over the death of a loved one. Lamenting over a heartbroken relationship. How would it feel to be coping nothing when we are so used to coping something? 

The tiny dust particles always appearing and disappearing - just like our emotions. Impermanence."
