‘If You Meet The Buddha On The Road, Kill Him’

I love this saying. Ever wondered what it meant?

As we near the start of 2019, we start to reflect our jobs, life, learnings and enlightenment of the 2018 road.

In a nut shell:

The Buddha you meet is YOUR reality, and you have to go beyond that. You can’t put a personality onto ‘ultimate reality’. Your mind can only deal with things on a certain level and so the mind tries to make Buddha a person. We’re trying to go beyond that (the Void), you can’t put a word to ‘ultimate reality’. The general rule of Zen is, if you can understand it intellectually, you aren’t there yet and keep going.

All our perceptions of reality is just an illusion, so you go beyond what you think enlightenment is, kill it. Keep practicing meditation and reflection as the answers to our life questions lie within. Your way is the red road and each person’s road is different.

If you meet any guru along the way, let go and run!

’til we meet again,

Walk in Beauty;

Walk in Peace.
