Were there no grasping of any sort of kind whatever by anyone at anything - that is to say, no grasping at the things of sense, no grasping through speculative opinions, no grasping after mere ritual and rule, no grasping through theories of the soul - then there being no grasping whatever, would there, owing to this cessation of grasping, be any appearance of becoming?When there is no sin there is no forgiveness. When there is sin there is no need of our forgiveness to forgive sin because sin is forgiven. Everything is holy. As we are. Innocent, as Bob said, from the get-go. Originally innocent.
- Dialogues of the Buddha
I wonder why we have such a difficult time with that.
Why is God not our every breath?
Nothing to be grasped.
