treasure of the heart

And as to me, I know nothing else but miracles.
~ Walt Whitman

To be enlightened is to be intimate with all things.
~ Dōgen

There is no such person as a Buddha. The Absolute is imminent in every man’s heart and this treasure of the heart is the only Buddha that exists. Those who seek the Buddha do not find him. This may be qualified into the statement that those who seek the Truth will find the Buddha and finding, comprehend not the Buddha, but the cause which underlies the phenomena of his life and teaching.

~ Elizabeth Barrington
