finger pointing to the moon, but not the moon…as the saying goes.
i love this explanation. no one has a copyright on Ultimate Reality, or whatever one’s tradition may call it (just words). we must allow room for Mystery, for a bit of humility as we engage our experience, this life (and beyond). having a Beginner’s Mind as Zen practitioners say, or the mind of a child as Jesus said.
BUT we can find a tradition that gives us a practice and helps us engage this Mystery and navigate a path.
Posted @withrepost • @jtenzinpalmo Jetsunma gives a great explanation of this topic concerning ultimate reality.
