Wisdom Is Assimilation
Realising the truth doesn’t come from being told something; it comes from assimilation. Assimilation is the process of taking in and fully understanding information, turning it into knowledge (which is knowing it) and wisdom (which is being it). This is the process of becoming similar to, or the same as, the whole of Buddha nature.
Assimilation can also mean becoming part of the whole, and never the whole itself. In the image of the all-seeing eye above the pyramid on the US dollar bill, you will notice that the capstone is not joined to the pyramid. The pyramid illustrates the levels in society, and the assimilation of mankind into the ‘Borg’ collective hive mind (courtesy of Start Trek :D), while being controlled by those who are behind the all-seeing eye.
Our job is to disentangle ourselves.
