We are enlightened beings
in a sentient body,
forgetting that we are enlightened beings.
We are all Buddhas in the mud.
Buddhism is being aware that we are covered in mud/enthusiastic ideas; these become emotions, which are very enthusiastic ideas. The moment we re-cognise this enthusiasm is the moment of knowing awareness; we remember our pure nature – pure awareness – and the mud drops off. The wisdom is to see that the mud never existed in the first place.
Get used to it!
