If you desire to get from here to there, it helps to know there is, and for that matter where here is, for if you do not know where here is, you cannot get from here to there for with one step here has moved. And if you do not know where there is everywhere you go is there even if it is not the there you wanted to go.
If you meet the Bodhisattva you don’t ask someone to carve the image from your mind. To the carver, she weighs but an ounce and can be carried on his fingertip but try and lift her and you will not be able to move her from her place.
All Buddhas are one Buddha but his Buddha will never be your Buddha.
