So long as we think we are a separate self distinct from the world around us, we think we can get out of the world. But once we see that we are the world, that we are made entirely of non-us elements, we realize that we do not need to go running after anything outside of us. The world cannot get out of the world. We already are everything we are looking for.
– Thich Nhat Hanh, in “The Art of Living”.
