So stop and consider

Not desiring to awaken to truth, is to awaken to truth.

Of course this does not mean than the average person is awake to truth: but this is important indeed for the seeker to comprehend.

Precisely. I guess the quote to sum it up would be:

"Before i studied Zen, the mountains were mountains and the rivers were rivers. When i was studying Zen, the mountains were not mountains and the rivers not rivers. Now i know Zen, the mountains were mountains again and the rivers rivers."

Cant remember which Zen master wrote this (Hui Neng?) but its beautiful, isnt it?

Hi Zero.

Yes a great quote indeed and with deeper and deeper meaning each step of the path.
