from "Open Secret", chapter 70

Apart from manifestation manifested there is no such thing as non-manifestation. Manifestation is the only non-manifestation. There is no other non-manifestation at all. To conceive it as "the source" of manifestation, that is, as some thing-in-itself, is as misleading as to conceive manifestation as a thing-in-itself.---Wei Wu Wei

  1. There is no other apart from self,
    No non-being apart from being,
    No non-manifestation apart from manifestation,
    Not because that is conceptually inevitable,
    But because their mutual existence is Apperceiving.---Wei Wu Wei
