The path exists within you as you. Everyone is always looking—looking here, looking there trying to find the path. It’s so close that if it were a snake it would bite you because you, yourself, are the path. You arise as the path.
This is something very difficult for everyone to get, especially Westerners, because they are so linear minded. You cannot see the path because you are the path itself. It’s as if you were trying to see your own eyeball; it can’t be done. You can see it in a mirror, but that’s only a reflection. What you see of the path is just its reflection—the drama of your life as it unfolds.
