Fooled Ya

I could put on a convincing show. I could suppress anger, and fein compassion, and dress just so, and speak just so, and tick off my eight fold path checkboxes...and not be one iota closer to realizing Buddha nature.

Better to be exactly who I am with as much authenticity as possible, fully wallowing in the three poisons, while I strive to uncover my Buddha nature, than to cover my true self with a Buddha nature costume.

Yeah, thats why yoga has Yama and Niyama. And there are those precept things. It may be a step just knowing when you are breaking them.
