Big Activity

Sometimes we talk about our clothing. Sometimes we talk about our body. But body or clothing are not actually we ourselves. We ourselves are big activity.

We are just taking a smallest particle of big activity, that’s all. So there will not be any need to talk about ourselves. So that we may realize this fact, there is teaching that we should talk about ourselves, but actually there is no need to talk about ourselves. We are already talking about the big existence, including ourselves. So to talk about ourselves is to correct our misunderstanding, that’s all, because we attach to the temporal form or color of the big activity.
