Blessed2 Posted November 25, 2022 Share Posted November 25, 2022 (edited) It seems to me like it is. I cannot imagine how anyone could be authentically seeking truth "just for the sake of truth itself". That sounds off to me. Though I've heard people say that. Jed McKenna comes to mind. He says seeking 'peace of mind' is just egos nonsense, and the only true path is to seek truth just for the sake of truth. I think that's bullshit. And manipulative. Cause of course you're seeking for truth cause you think that's gonna be some sort of completion, a resolution, or Peace? Brings in mind certain someone else who talks about "understanding for the sake of understanding". Gives me the same manipulative vibe. I think that's a way to try to seem like 'purer than thou', cause anyone hearing that will automatically be like "whaaat how could I ever have a pure intention like that? I just want to feel better. He must be less biased than I am." etc. I dunno, somehow lately as the fact that I'm in fact not feeling great has come more and more clear and allowed to surface, and as the sort of message or calling to have it corrected is heard / felt, it just seems to me like denying the path of the Buddha makes less and less sense.
