Myself Unfolds Itself

Myself unfolds itself throughout the entire world. You should examine the fact that all things and events of this entire universe are temporal particularities. Just as particular times are unobstructed by one another, so are things and events unobstructed. Therefore while desire for enlightenment [of the self and the world] is wakened simultaneously, time is aroused by one and the same enlightenment. This holds true of practice and enlightenment. My self particularizes myself in space and time, and beholds it. Such is the reason of the time of myself.
