We Are A Deviation
and easily misled
If we think the Dharma is the teaching then we are mistaken: we are the Dharma. The Dharma is not only within us – it is us, our essence. We are essence.
It doesn’t matter how many teachings we go to, or how many books (or blogs) we read, or to whom we talk, the real Dharma teaching is our own experience. We have to do exactly what a Buddha does, and that is look.
Life is about refining what we know – evolving, rather than becoming a fossil. The Dharma is the living experience to realise our fullest potential. Its purpose is to help us escape from our cocoon, rather than encasing ourselves in more ‘fine silk’.
This is not about how much we know. It’s about knowingness itself, which is reflected in genuine kindness, without appearing to believe that we are superior to others.
Religion – or the teachings on our true essence – can only be destroyed from within if we are not looking correctly. In these corrupt times, we have to be extra-aware.
We are living Dharma.
