It is said that soon after his enlightenment the Buddha passed a man on the road who was struck by the Buddha’s extraordinary radiance and peaceful presence. The man stopped and asked, “My friend, what are you? Are you a celestial being or a god?”
“No,” said the Buddha.
“Well, then, are you some kind of magician or wizard?”
Again the Buddha answered, “No.”
“Are you a man?”
“Well, my friend, then what are you?”
The Buddha replied, “I am awake.”
Science and rational thinking are the very definition of being awake. Insisting on evidence is not closemindedness, but rather truly being awake. Dreams of mystic worlds, Deus ex Machina and supernatural explanations are just that, dreams. You find rational evidence when you are awake.
Awaken from your dreams and be your own Buddha.
