  1. The instruction in one Tibetan tradition is translated: “Liberate Even the Antidote” – meaning free yourself from that which freed you.

    Krishnamurti is very interesting on that topic, too.

  2. That is a good one, Ellen!

  3. Just thought of this today.

    In a zen story, a master asks his student: How much in the sutra was said by Buddha? How much was said by the devil? The student answers: All was said by the devil!

    Whatever you get to know or understand, you have to discard it immediately and go back to the original state, which is the state of not knowing.
