Everything in the phenomenal world is a footprint of Buddha, including the basic spaced-out experience we might feel. We also have the sense of relating with every detail in life, seeking answers, questioning, looking into life as it is. From this point of view, everything is a footprint, anything that goes on, whether we regard it as sublime or ridiculous. Everything we do – breathing, farting, getting mosquito bites, having fantastic ideas about reality, thinking clever thoughts, flushing the toilet – whatever occurs is a footprint of Buddha in the phenomenal world.
