i hope you learn and experience many truths through participation in Dharmawheel, and that you become truly enlightened whilst visiting this site.
i was talking to a teacher last night and he said "put your pencil on the page and draw... just draw, anything". what i drew seemed to look like a sort of tree, with a pond at its base.
the message hidden in the drawing was that once one has crossed the ocean of samsara, on the other side is the great tree of life. there is a temple within the branches of the tree and one must ascend many many steps to climb its trunk, if one wishes to... another difficult journey. my Master told me that it is love that will enable a buddha to climb the tree of life to the inner temple within its branches.
its like taking a train journey. you get to the destination, then you further explore.
