The key seems to be to have the conditions not to get intoxicated by reading about deep teachings (e.g D.O) in a way that leads to "delerious thinking" and oblivion to the realities of the moment. We are so fortunate to have a teacher who tirelessly pulls us out of our excessive thinking about deep teachings (valuable to know something about them, of course) and back to the present dhammas.
