From ‘The Hearth of the Buddha’s Teaching’, by Thich Nhat Hanh

no idea

“Your concept or perception of reality is not reality. When you are caught in your perceptions and ideas, you lose reality.
To practice is to go beyond ideas, so you can arrive at the suchness of things. “No idea” is the path of non-conception. As long as there is an idea, there is no reality, no truth. “No idea” means no wrong idea, no wrong conception. It does not mean no mindfulness.
[…]
Buddhism is not a collection of views. It is a practice to help us eliminate wrong views. The quality of our views can always be improved. From the viewpoint of ultimate reality, Right View is the absence of all views.”
