Buddhadharma : Summer 2012
SUMMER 2 0 1 2 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 31 neat little analytic, conceptual techniques, and we cook in this cocoon until we shed the concep- tual techniques and just be butterflies. And now that we’re butterflies, we can teach other larvae about how to put a skin around themselves in a more selfless way, because we’re liberated from our conceptual approaches. When we first come to the practice, in some sense we’re like little larvae, since we haven’t found our own inner truth yet. So we wrap our- selves in the Buddha’s teaching of the first turn- ing. And we grow in that, and then we drop that, and then we just directly be ourselves, our but- terfly selves. Then we lay the eggs of the teaching so there can be another generation. This is the cycle of the wheel. It’s the first turning, the second turning, the third turning, the first turning, the second turning, the third turning, and so on. We need to keep cycling our conceptual activity with the immediacy of reality and then test the immediacy of reality by reenter- ing the world of conception, the world of words. Then we drop the words, drop the signs, drop the characteristics, drop the conceptions and enter into the world of immediate freedom. Then we test it by reentering the world of the manipula- tion of concepts, and round and round we go. From The Third Turning of the Wheel by Reb Anderson, © 2012.
