pulling the rug under the feet

pulling the rug under the feet

Buddhist philosophy is a bit like – it has to have the effect of pulling the rug under your feet. Because if the Buddhist path agrees with your emotional expectations and conventional expectations – not good. Might as well get a good job as a banker or something. Morality, ethic, all of this is just a pain. The habit of dualism is so strong, that even a little bit of information about nonduality, even it confuses you, I think it is a good start.
