Buddha Quote

Transformation
I realised that anything and everything "profound" that I have
"realised" is just a "good memory" if has yet to really transform
my life. It is totally not difficult to conceive of, even by
one's own imagination, complex and true interpretations of the
truth of all things (reality). In fact, every sane person can
write a book of his realisations from the Dharma as learnt from
his life to some significant extent. But it all ultimately lies
in how willing and how deeply we choose to let it all transform
us that really matters. Anything else we do with it renders the
truth as "practically untrue." That we let a teaching or
realisation transform us, can be a most subtle thing. But it is
the will to sustain and let grow this subtlety that is the will
to Enlightenment itself. It can be as simple as bearing a line of
a teaching in mind and trying to apply it in everyday life till
perfected. For the theoretically advanced Buddhist, you are
probably already theoretically advanced... time to advance
practically then. You have for the time being read enough books?
Time to "make" agreed book theory "real." Take time to transform,
even if slowly, do it steadily... be really true to yourself.
Without taking this time, all else is ultimately meaningless and
getting nowhere. This passage itself... you needn't have read
it-if you are not going to let it transform you. I don't wish you
to simply nod your head in theoretical agreement, or try to
recall where you last heard of something similar. Get "real"-be
transformed, or it's just an utter waste of time for you (the
reader) and me (the writer), of your life and mine.
