If You Focus On The Finger, You Will Miss The Moon


However you return to your true nature is irrelevant. The ego likes to attach itself to concepts, words, ideas, right, wrong, etc.

If someone (enlightened being, anyone) points you to yourself, your true nature, which is egoless, it doesn’t matter who the person is. It could be a “guru”, a child, a homeless person.

Thich Nhat Hanh quoting the Buddha, "My teachings are a finger pointing to the moon. Do not get caught in thinking that the finger is the moon. It is because of the finger that you can see the moon."
