"The moment that we hear about something, we read a little bit about the dharma, we just hear the word enlightenment and it’s all there; we begin to create images in the mind. That then becomes the place we seek. This is why we encounter various disappointments along the way in practice, because at various points we realize that what we think it is, it’s not. The good news is that what we ultimately discover — the truth — is so much more."
