Dare I Say It?

“Teachers can be a problem.”
“Traditions can be a problem.”
“Other students can be a problem.”

None are wrong:
They each have their own way.
But that way is an amalgamation of others’ ways.
We have to choose what works for us
so that we can be of benefit to others.

We can inadvertently acquire practices and attitudes, which seem like commitments, fearing that these cannot be dropped. The acquisition of commitments can restrict us, rather than setting us free. That is the dilemma. We may find that we are ‘rushing to ritual’, and not resting in practice, which is the essence of the teaching.

It’s just worth considering.
