Do not believe anything because it is said by an authority, or if it is said to come from angels, or from Gods, or from an inspired source.
Believe it only if you have explored it in your own heart and mind and body and found it to be true. Work out your own path, through diligence. –

"The greatest discovery in life, the most precious treasure, is of awareness. Without it you are bound to be in darkness, full of fears. And you will go on creating new fears; there is no end to it.

And it was all the time your potential; any moment you could have claimed it, but you never claimed it.
It is your responsibility."

Nan-in said: "Like this cup, you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup.
When you are not, the divine is.
