Buddha and YOU

This is what the Buddha did.
He didn’t say, “I’ll try.”
He didn’t say, “I hope I’ll find the Truth.”
He didn’t say, “I’ll do my best.”
He didn’t say, “If not in this lifetime, then maybe next lifetime.”
He came to the point where he didn’t look for anyone else to tell him the Truth or show him the Truth. He came to the point where he took it all on himself. He sat alone under the Bodhi Tree and vowed never to give up until the Truth be realized.
The power of this very simple, yet unshakable intention and absolute stand to be liberated in this lifetime propelled him to awaken to the simple fact that he and all beings are liberated—that all beings are freedom itself. Pure awakeness.
The Buddha was no different from YOU. No different......
