Things are Not What You Think – tricycle

Not What You Think | October 13, 2014

The early teachings deconstruct many habitual ways of being and seeing. We think we’re permanent, but we’re not. We think that by craving things weÂ’ll find happiness, but we won’t. One after another the Buddha challenges our established views, our ways of constructing our version of the world, and takes them apart: you think it’s one way but it’s not; you want an answer, but the problem is your very wanting of an answer.

– Henry Shukman, “The Unfamiliar Familiar”
