what is more important...the path or the people who travel it?

the buddha who was or the people who are?

i think we mistake the big picture for a single photograph

and yet, in a single photograph, the big picture expresses itself

we don't know who we are

or how we got here

or where we are going

we only know

that we are afraid sometimes

happy and sad sometimes

good and bad sometimes

just like gautama buddha

the man who ran away

to find himself

and in the end


be a light unto yourself

what a fake
