We must believe ourselves…

Believe in yourself

If I am eating, you can’t feel your stomach is full.

If I am drinking, your thirst is still there.

If I am taking a bath, your can’t feel how refresh after taking a bath.

We need to depend on ourselves.

“A teacher cannot really clear up our difficulties. He is just a source to investigate the Path. He can’t make it clear. Actually what he says is not worth listening to. The Buddha never praised believing in others. We must believe ourselves. This is difficult, YES, but that’s really how it is. We look outside but never really see. We have to decide to really practice. Doubts don’t disappear by asking others, but through our own unending practice.”
