Being and Becoming

Remain in wonder if you want the mysteries to open up for you. Mysteries never open up for those who go on questioning. Questioners sooner or later end up in libraries. Questioners sooner or later end up with scriptures, because scriptures are full of answers. And answers are dangerous, they kill your wonder. All the Buddhas of all the ages have been telling you a very simple fact: Be; don't try to become. Within these two words be and becoming, your whole life is contained. Being is Enlightenment, becoming is ignorance.
