I don’t exist, no, it don’t

“The Buddha said that at the end we throw everything back. The meaning of this is that we have been thieves all our lives by taking the things of nature to be “I” and “mine.” We have been stupid and we suffer for it. Now, we have become wise and are able to give things up. We give it all back to nature and never steal anything ever again. At this last step of prac­tice we realize, “Oh! It’s nature’s not mine.” Then we can throw everything back to nature.”

-Bhikku Buddhadasa.
