A Path of Discovery

'The bad news is you're falling through the air,
Nothing to hang on to, no parachute.
The good news is there is no ground.'
Chogyam Trungpa

Scientists are often surprised.

A routine experiment yields a new discovery.
New evidence provides another lead to follow.
A changing landscape provides the opportunity to plot a new course.

Setting yourself up for discovery is a conscious choice.

The meditator never believes they have it all figured out.  Their experience never testifies 'this is it' but rather continues to open up new ground.  Contemplation, investigation and insight are all indispensable on the path to discover the awakened mind.
