The therapy of Buddha means "chipping away" at all the mental neurosis and thought disorders - "To get to the root of the reality" ...

.
Why then are there are many buddhists being obesessed by the mental neurosis of "getting somewhere" or "achieving something"?  :fu:

I guess its because they haven't realized Buddha's way of existence.

Because not all people know the true reality.

Like people who don't know they are dreaming, they will get involve in it.

Because they don't know the true reality, they think their normal view which is dualistic is reality.

If we have dualistic view, it is automatic there is something for you to achieve or to get.

Even if let's say we can already know there is nothing to achieve, we still have a strong habit that at anytime can bring you back to your old way of seeing.

Longchenpa said this very well in his Treasury of Reality:

Root Text-
"During the empty enchantment of dream
ignorant babes are entranced,
while the wise, disillusioned, are undeceived;
those unaware of the truth of absence,
clinging to their identity, wander in circles,
while the wise yogin, fully present,
aware of the zing of reality
convinced of the absence of that very moment,
is liberated in the non-contingent reality-matrix."

Auto-commentary -
"Enchanted by the play of illusion, children who do not know their own minds are bewitched. They take the show to be real and become attached to it, enwrapped in their imagination. Old people, on the other hand, who know the story, cannot get caught by such fascination...." (Longchenpa)

This was quite helpful for my own current dilemma...

Be well

But that is itself the same mental neurosis, this perception "they have not realized" which implies that there would be "something to realize".  :fu:

As long as it is nourished by warmth and moisture. Upon disintegration ideas will cease.  :fu:

Edit: I've decided I don't want to talk about Dzogchen at all and risk any karmic infractions.
