As Chan practitioners, we practice to detach ourselves from all forms, 
because all forms are transient, impermanent and empty by nature.

When we see all forms as emptiness, then we see true form.  The true 
form mentioned here in Diamond Sutra is the universal life force and wisdom.

When we walked into Costco, do we see every merchandise just as shapes, 
colors and sizes?
When we watch TV, can we switch it off at any moment?  Or turn it on and 
begin to watch it from anywhere in the middle?
When we talk or write, can we stop in the middle of our sentence without 
insisting to finish? Can we wait until others finish theirs?

These are all but forms.  Their only values are relative to each being 
at each moment, and are all but result of some causes and caused by 
generations of other causes. 

When we begin to sync with the universal life force, we could be still 
and unaffected by forms.  As our synchronicity improve we could begin to 
realize the true nature of forms. Then we could sync to current moment 
which are the causes of future forms.

Liberation begins by detaching from all forms.  It begins by detaching 
from knowledges, languages, logic......

Be present beyond forms. Sync to the life force at every moment.

It is not hard to witness, just practice.  Begin the practice with deep 
belly breathing...
