Profound Dharmas

Explaining many profound dharmas is easy; living them yourself is hard.

-Adept Godrakpa, "Hermit of Go Cliffs"

James's comment:

Another great reminder that it is easier to philosophize and understand the Dharmas in our brains. As well as explaining them. Whereas living them in our personal life comes the real practice.

This truth always has me seeking a reminder of my practice. I know it in my heart but often forget it in my mind :O) I move too fast to live how I feel sometimes, it is v. frustrating.

Constant blog reader that I am, I found this at whiskey river posted today, 37 min. after your post, James. Synchronicity? May be.

"People who study the path clearly know there is such a thing; why do they fail to get the message, and go on doubting? It is because their faith is not complete enough and their doubt is not deep enough. Only with depth and completeness, be it faith or doubt, is it really Zen; if you are incapable of introspection like this, you will eventually get lost in confusion and lose the thread, wearing out and stumbling halfway along the road. But if you can look into yourself, there is no one else." - Foyan

Yeah, a lot of us struggle this way. Keep on keeping on.


Sychronicity indeed.

Thanks for the link and quote. :)
