If everything is mixed-up always, what is the point of appreciating everything if everything is just phenomenon? Why do we appreciate such a tentative phenomenal world? If you understand in that way, that is like to serve food in mixed-up [laughs] way. Salad and [laughs] brown rice and miso soup in one big pail [laughs], mixed-up in bucket or something. How do you [laughing] feel to eat from bucket like a pig [laughter]? We should serve one by one. That is our way.
