when you're hungry and do the dishes as needed. Every problem has an
answer - for good or ill. Don't look at them as others. They are
simply folk, as you and I are.

obstacle to awakening. The path or the idea of the path is that you
will eventually end-up somewhere. By focusing on the path the seeker
fails to realize that they are already at the goal. In fact, they are

"He does not attain a 'many' or a 'One' that is separate from himself;
It is not something 'other', like an object with length and breadth.
It cannot be objectively proven, or compared with anything.
It's the Lord, the Self, the Eternal, he attains."
The Song of The Avadhut - chapter 2 verse 36.
