When I wake up in the morning there's the habit of reflecting on last night's (non)"appearing" dream and simultaniously the "absence" of "it" and the so called (non-)appearance of the "Awakened one" All analysis is clowning, active or suspended/bedded down. :D
Same as with the viewpoint from the Earth there is the presence and absence of sunlight, "but" from the viewpoint of the Sun, there is no such thing as the coming and going of Light, there's not even such a thing as Light or absence of Light (darkness) so also no self-referential nonzense of "Enlightenment" :D
All appearance is delusion, if you view all appearance as non-appearance
then that "view" is your true nature
do not become attached to any thoughts that arise in the mind
if you see form as the Absolute, if you search out the Absolute with your voice
you are practising the wrong path, and cannot see your true self
All compunded things are like a dream, a phantom, a bubble, or a reflection
They are like dew or lighting thus should you view them
~Diamond Sutra

Yeah, got that instruction, message,understood.

This body an aggregate of things produces a sense of self
Ego is like a dream, a phantom, a bubble.

All compounded things are like a dream, a phantom ...
Yeah, got that too

I am still working on which came first the chicken or the egg??
When one builds a life around the eight fold path, all the steps are there
But, there is or is no real meditation.
Isn't that like a lover who proposes marriage with a ring box with no ring inside??
It looks good from the outside until one opens the box to see it is empty??

When asked, "What have you gained now that you are enlightened?"
Answer, "Absolutely nothing"

Okay, all appearance is delusion,
Yeah, got it
