  One day a Vinaya master asked a Zen master:
-How should one practice Tao?
The Zen master replied:
-Eat when you are hungry, sleep when you are tired.
The Vinaya master said:
-Most people do that.
The Zen master... continue...

To me , in Buddhism anyone or anything is my GURU regardless their nature / background or living or non-living .........................all being is SAME and EQUAL to me . In Buddhism , all being is providing great source of information , lesson , factor for my realization to know myself and accept myself leading to emptiness ...........

if human still glued to their knowledge , seeing what they wish to see , knowing what they already known , searching to find answer to fit they desire on questioning and answering..............and use such knowledge as basis of their path , human will always creates distinction / comparison on others beings ..........leading them the option to choose .............

In my current understanding , why we need to choose if only we wish to learn ? ................

A doctor can teach us about medicine , a thief can teach us how to steal , a trainer can teacgh us how to run , a frog can teach us how to jump if we want to jump like frog...even animal could teach us in sex ...is all our choice , all is guru .

is all teaching us and is our own choice to choose .....no one will harm us or chance us , is always our choice , our will in the journey we choose in our own world .....

so to me all beings is guru ...Thks

Quote: "Empty your bowl. "
.........

In my current understanding , Buddhism is "emptying  the bowl" that causes existence of ownselves ...BUT not by desire , or wish or practice but is by ownselves realization .....................so if one trying to " empty the bowl" he will always entertaining another emotions creating more self .....................
