We cheat ourselves the most.
Since talking of holy ones, it reminds me on how I started to grasp to the awaken ones or those appearing as awaken and inspire to awaken. No doubt in that but I also started to grasp to ordinary ones or those not inspiring for awakening. The wheel could turn: aversion-attachment or the nectar of hidden suffering. Oh glory haleluya!
First, as far as i understand, our mind discerns an awaken one and trust, but then if we remain holding on the awaken one and the not awaken ones, it is a problem.
As once was me told that compassion and devotion is not different, it is exactly the same selfless love. Oh yes. Sigh. It is the love for/from the awaken one which expanse, turning in love with everyone and everything. ( or something like this expression)
Now lets take a cigar! But I don't smoke.
Dharma wheel is internet-emptiness, emptiness-internet. Sanghas can appear safe with cosy socks and warm cups of tea while the diversity and its equality we push away, far away when that very Sangha is not expanding. Sangha is all.
Buddha-Dharma-Sangha= not things apart.
