In hearing, there is no hearing. Hearing does not depend on hearing. Hearing is not born and it can never die. When sound arises, hearing does not create it. When sound diminishes, it is not extinguished by hearing. Nor is the nature of hearing created by the arising or diminishing of sound.

Just realize that hearing is unborn and undying. Hearing does not come and go. How can you realize the wisdom of this? Listen!

The void and you are not two or even one
Awakening and delusion are like wakefulness and dreaming,
Awake or dreaming you are you.
Dreaming or awake you are not you,
The void and you are not two or even one.

~The Flatbed Sutra of Louie Wing
