Thought Is the Thinker - Wapola Rahula

"There is no unmoving mover behind the movement. It is only movement. It is not correct to say life is moving, but life is movement itself. Life and movement are not two different things. In other words, there is no thinker behind the thought. Thought itself is the thinker. If you remove the thought, there is no thinker to be found."- Walpola Rahula, "What the Buddha Taught." (Submitted by meditator Todd Brown.)

This is a great statement pointing to the illusion of egoic separation and ultimate transcendence and dissolution of the subject-object relationship. Non-duality, here I come. But where is there to go? And who is going there? And what is non-duality? Ha!
