Favorite enlightened quote:
“If a seeker really wants Truth above all else, they will arrive eventually. If they secretly want something else, they need to discover what it is and then either complete it or drop it. Be a skeptic; don’t get attached to any beliefs… When you are willing to encounter the unknown, then you have Zen mind. You could fall in love with the beauty of a single cherry blossom or face your death unflinchingly. Master that and you will have all the other necessary qualities. A healthy body and mind helps, too.”
~ Dave Oshana
