Thread: Looking for the 'Way'?

    Looking for the 'Way'?

    Hi everyone, Thought of sharing the following verse with you. Appreciate your comments.

    Looking for the ‘Way’

    Looking for the ‘Way of the Buddha’?
    Siddhartha discovered his
    And it is for you to discover yours
    You cannot walk the ‘Way’ of others
    Not even that of the Buddha
    Your ‘Way’ is right there within you and it is your very own.
    No one can walk this ‘Way’ and no one ever will
    It is all yours to seek and to seek only you can
    But all this while you never saw it
    “It is somewhere else” you were told
    You were blind to believe them
    And here you are, still looking for your ‘Way’
    Running after so-called ‘holy’ men and their ‘sacred’ books
    Unaware, they don’t even know their own Way, leave alone yours
    As long as you have no faith in yourself
    Sadly, this ‘Way of the Buddha’ is way beyond you.

    “Seek your Dhamma within not without”

    I enjoy this. Did you write it, Bradley?

    Hi Jerrod, Thanks for your response. As to your question, I wish I could. Maybe in the future but for now I am still in my early stages trying to understand the way of the Buddha. This verse came to me from a source whose email was provided to me by a friend who got me interested in Dhamma. Their interpretation of what Buddha said is very practical and realistic and in sharp contrast to what we know as religions. - regards

    Hi Bradley,

    It sits well with my understanding of the essential teachings. This is why I enjoyed it, because it affirms my views. Subtle defilements, sometimes not so subtle.
