50. The Self in Zazen

We say, “ I am doing zazen.” But where in our actual experience can we locate the Self?

Can we locate it in the thoughts that arise? No, because these thoughts arise within a broader awareness.

Can we locate it in that awareness? No, because how is that awareness particular to you?

Can we locate it in our experienced world? No, because this would entail each of us having our own world, which is absurd.
