Confusion_is_the_Mother_of_Wisdom

I found this interesting, thinking of skin purely as one more sensory organ rather than the boundary between inside and outside:
"The people that you meet, the things that you do, arise within your experience. They are not outside of you. You might believe that your skin forms a kind of boundary between you and the world, but the skin is in fact simply another way of knowing the world. Do you feel the clothes on your back and on your legs? Do you feel the temperature of the room? This is what the skin does. It knows. It is aware and alive."
