Followers, Seekers and Finders

A follower follows the words.

A seeker seeks the meaning of the words.
A finder realises the meaning of the words.

We all go through stages along our path of confusion to enlightenment, and it’s helpful to recognise these stages in oneself and in others – with the eye of compassion. This recognition puts an end to any desire to find fault and argue. We reflect by compassionate example, making no demands.

“If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him!”

The road is our path of confusion.
If, while on our path of confusion,
we meet a Buddha
– a conceptual idea of perfection –
this is still our confusion so
realise it!
kill it!
and laugh!
