Daily Dharma: Grabbing Space

Today's Daily Dharma from Tricycle is worth some serious contemplation.

Grabbing Space

Trying to find a Buddha or enlightenment is like trying to grab space. Space has a name but no form. It's not something you can pick up or put down. And you certainly can't grab it. Beyond this mind you'll never see a Buddha. The Buddha is a product of your mind. Why look for a Buddha beyond this mind?
