Releasing Answers

Your greatest achievement is not finding the answer, but finding and living peacefully with the question---the answer will change (if you are living, growing), but the question will not.---cgw

Answers can make us less, unless we are willing to let them go. Perhaps the answer is like a Zen Koan, something quite contradictory between definition and reality. Rather than answer being conclusion to the question, the answer can provide us the conclusion to being stuck. For finding the answer, we may realize that we are no closer to being satisfied (having confused what is nourishing and what is utensil).

Tao Te Ching, Verse 48
The student learns by daily increment.
The Way is gained by daily loss,
Loss upon loss,
At last becomes rest.
