Before we can be right, we must stop being wrong. That’s another way of saying that on the journey of awakening, we have a long way to go before we can begin. We have to get back to the starting point we’ve spent our entire lives moving away from, only then can we set out in the right direction. Our cups are all full in the zenny parable sense, so before we can pour in the elixir, we must pour out the piss. Nobody likes this backward part and nobody does it. At the same time, the search for the only thing that can never be lost is the greatest failure in the history of mankind. I understand that correlation doesn’t imply causation, but it doesn’t rule it out either.
