The Finger Is Not The Moon July 21, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Magick & Mystery, Meditation, Mindfulness.
Truth has nothing to do with words.
Truth can be likened to the bright moon in the sky.
Words, in this case, can be likened to a finger.
The finger can point to the moon’s location.
However, the finger is not the moon.
To look at the moon, it is necessary to gaze beyond the finger, right?
“I am a finger pointing at the moon. Don’t look at me; look at the moon.” ~ The Buddha
“Barn’s burnt down. Now I can see the moon.”
Aah . . . that’s better!
