„To become learned, each day add something. To become enlightened, each day drop something” (Lao Tzu).
how should I feel now? I just dropped „yesterday” into the past, but it was a day when I added something. so, it’s a double throw. now I should be at the learning curve level of two days ago. but what if the things I added yesterday are linked with the day before? then you have a triple throw. and if you keep going back in time, by throwing only one of your days into the past, then you just threw them all and are at the learning curve of to the day you were born.
therefore, being enlightened means having the state of mind of a new new born. ta-daam.
