First there was the gradual path, the progressive path: I could, through practice, become enlightened.
Then there was the instant path, the sudden path: I could, through a flash of insight, become enlightened.
Now, I am happily lost.
Where is the path? Does ‘right here’ have a path to it? Where is the path to yourself?
Concepts of enlightenment and unenlightenment are fancy distractions, sideshows, jokes.
How can there be a path?
This is the way.
