We were wrong. We were all (mostly) wrong.
Life’s rule book, religion’s rituals, the practices we use to try to heal ourselves are all ‘finger’s pointing to the moon’.
We mistake the ‘how’ for ‘what’.
We mistake the Path for the Destination.
We mistake the means for the end.
It’s as if we have been given a map and we are coloring it in when we should be using it to find our way.
