But believing that awakening
Can be brought about through scripture is
Like hoping to find fresh water in dried fish.
The main difficulty is in experientially realizing
What has been intellectually understood.
The paradox of awakening is that it is both gradual and sudden.
It is like termites gnawing away at a tree.
Eating, gnawing, eating;
Suddenly the tree falls.
