Hello Practitioners, For years I have mentioned that we filter all information with our limited brain, or that our knowledge are partial and incomplete. What I have come to realize recently was, that was only half of the problem. The other half of the problem was from inside of ourselves.
The fact that we insist on the any part of our knowledge to be the absolute truth, no matter how weak or how tiny, is a sign of our internal struggle. Since language and knowledge is relative and interpretive, they are not absolute and can't survive the test of time. Forms are impermanent. This impermanence includes our knowledge, the languages itself as well as our trust to it. So look inward, which part of our know how that we are "afraid" of let go? My way or the high way? My view or else? How about our relationships, our accomplishments, our expertise, our practice, our dharma? Is our peace conditional and protected. Or is it open and naked? I remember someone wrote that Buddhaland is right beyond our comfort zone. Well? Thank you for your time.
