The Adaptable Adept

As humans, we are highly adaptable. This is a double-edged sword: we have both the potential of becoming an adept in enlightened activity and the ability to remain ingenious adepts at staying unenlightened.

There are thus two aspects, and these appertain to both our physical world, and the world of knowledge:

  • We accept that we have enough, know our motivation, and enjoy adapting to situations. This offers freedom to live in peace within our circumstances.

  • The alternative is that we constantly feel we don’t have enough and crave more. In this way, we become addicted to living a life of bondage through temporary enjoyments, lacking any sense of inner peace.

We already know but don’t recognise that we know.
