Ruthie inquired: If I dig you correctly…I mean to say, if I get the skinny on the low down; one who wishes to obtain perfect wisdom should study the way things are in the world and they should practice daily perfections but yet, believe them to be un-real! For that matter, what I read on the internet and see in my own backyard…I should not pay homage to the silliness or write about them or make them false gods…per say?
Mr. Buddha replied:
Just so, Ruthie. Right on Momma! One who contemplates life or being in a conformed or not conformed manner is now an expert. He or she can go about the world pointing out the ‘truth’ to others.
For example, do you see that gun over there? It is not real. Nor is the fear that some non follower of the truth will take it and pop you right in the ass because you tied your shoes the wrong way.
To show these non believers the truth words are not always needed.
But is this just for the wise and knowledgeable?
“No, quite the opposite,” replied Mr. Buddha.
“This is open to all, even the dull witted and to those who lack medication. The door is open to all but the one that is lazy and ignorant. For example, look at yourself, Ruthie. You fell blindly in the idea of un-attachment and are now looking down the barrel of a gun!”
