The hour is late, and not much time to play with this ...
You see a star. You become conscious of seeing a star.
Why do we --only-- cut things up into pieces that way? Is that the only way to see "seeing"?? Can you see "you seeing" in other ways too?
Why not also ...
You-seeing-star or (even more intimately) completely youseeingstar ... just one big dance with no clear border where star and starlight and eye and mind end or begin, one apart from the other.
How about (to play the kind of games Dogen sometimes does with language) ...
starseeingyou ... youseeingyou which is just starseeingstar ...
Seeing-stargazing-you ... staryouingseeing
Anyway ... what "you" and what "star"?? ... such that there is just seeingseesseeing
On the other hand, Keizan cautions, don't think that there is no "you" too to see the very real "star".
The star is giant and distant, but is it not right in the eye? Is not the star filling the eye which swallows the star without blinking? It swallows all the sea and stars.
Buddha, sitting under a tree, saw the morning star and was awakened, You see the morning star 2500 years later. Is that the same star? Is Buddhaseeingyou? Is that youseeingBuddha. Can "youseeyou" for who you are? Perhaps Buddha-buddhaing-buddha?
As the Beatles sang the song (or as thesongsangthebeatles)
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game. It's easy.
