There was a man who studied the Dao for many years. He practiced Daoist meditation and came very close to the Dao on many occassions, often getting a glimpse.
One day, in reading a passage from the scriptures, he began to think that really the Dao is nothing special, and rather boring.
He began to understand that it has no substance, it’s not anything fancy that should be thought about or conceptualized.
Right there he became enlightened.
Understanding the Dao does not involve any special knowledge. It involves unlearning limitations and constraints that have been placed on your life. The true fact is that with all our knowledge today and all the information available to us, our IQ is actually lower than our ancient ancestors.
To the ordinary mind, meditation is boring. To the awareness mind, meditation is returning to one’s true nature.
