Search for Gold--Practice Is the Goal

Search for Gold--Practice Is the Goal

Koans of the Way of Reality: Case 101
Many spiritual seekers enter the path with expectations. There is a goal at the end of the rainbow and it is golden. We want to attain enlightenment, peace, and tranquility. We are seduced by special powers and mystical experiences. We desire to transform unwanted personality traits. We wish to be wiser, more compassionate, aware, perfect. The treasure that will make it all worthwhile lies somewhere in the vague future. We are willing to postpone and sacrifice now for the gold later. We endure. Modern marketing of spiritual materialism stokes our hunger and discontent. But goal-oriented practice does not last. We burn out instead of burning up. Enduring, we miss the moment and our lives. This talk exposes these misguided approaches to practice. Master Unmon jolts a determined seeker to see the truth that is right under his or her nose--the universe is the highway and the philosopher's stone is already in your hands.
