What attracts and allures you from a distance does not look the same at close range. When you go nearer you wonder, "Is this the same that I saw from a distance?" You might have noticed at some time that when you are far from a mountain, it appears mellow, round and soft. Covered in mist, it looks like wax. When you are right next to it, though, you see the sharp stones and rocks.


That is why, in order to understand the nature of reality, we have to see what is real without distorting or hiding it. We have to remove all the outside wrappings, which are created by our mind. The mind creates many beautiful phrases and mirages. It likes to hide reality with glossy coverings. Like the deer who runs towards a mirage of water when it is thirsty, we too are in a frenzy to get that which is merely an illusion.
