Is All of life an "inside job"?

Ordinary life and Buddhahood have no distinction. Great knowledge is not different from ignorance. Why should one seek outwardly for a treasure, when the field of the body has its own bright jewel?

Good point, digikook.


Yes, the health of the soul is more important than anything else.
Namaste to you too!
Peace and blessings!

Life is what you make it. Get a DUI or get someone pregnant and your life will be CRAP.


Well, everything is enlightenment. “The great way is not hard, just stop views”. Namaste. ~ : )

Yes, I think we are all that we need to be.
Although external ‘hints’ can still be valuable, in the end, the answers lie within. Answers? Perhaps that should just be answer. For maybe once we have ‘the’ question, we ‘have’ it.
‘Even if there is perplexed or troubled thinking, it is not apart
from the bright jewel. It is not a deed or thought produced by
something that is not the bright jewel. Therefore, both coming and going in the Black Mountain’s Cave of Demons [that is, in
delusions] are themselves nothing but the one bright jewel.’


Master Pai-chang said,
“After enlightenment one is still the same as one was before. One is simply free from unreality and delusion. The ordinary person’s mind is the same as the sage’s, because Original Mind is perfect and complete in itself. After you have had this recognition, please don’t lose it.”
Peace to you.
