What Is Our Ultimate Concern?

True Nature

Reality In Our Daily Lives

We look upon reality in our daily lives through the historical dimension, but we can also look upon the same reality in the ultimate dimension. We have our daily and historical concerns, but each of us also has our ultimate concerns.

Our Ultimate Concern

When we look for God or nirvana or the deepest kind of peace, we are concerned about the ultimate. We are not only concerned with the facts of daily life – our position in society, our projects, etc. – but we are also concerned about our true nature. To meditate deeply is to begin to fulfill our ultimate concern.
