Dogen Zenji found out a very good Chinese word to express this kind of truth. Chinese word is inmo.Inmo has two meaning. One is positive meaning: “suchness,” you know. The other is the interrogative meaning: “What is it?” [Laughs.] What-- what is inmo? How is inmo? What is it when geese [laughs] came? Horsemaster asked Hyakujo, “What is it?” That “what,” you know, what is inmo? Inmo is interrogative, and it is affirmative too.  ---------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-04-B as found on Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more.
