A monk came to say good bye to Ch'an master Niaowo (Bird's Nest). He said:
-Thank you, Sir, for everything you've done for me. Now I got to go.
-Where will you go?
-Any place where I can learn Buddha dharmas.
Dreams are just that ... dreams. They are illusions until you start to believe them to be real. Then, they become delusions. Your life is a delusion cause you know this is all there can be. From your experiences, you know this life. Nothing else. When you begin your inquiry of your mind, you start the journey to see the truth. Sit and practice .... read ... find a teacher ... find a sangha ... hahaha
