To understand and realize our buddhanature and the nature of our own mind we don't need something new. Our buddhanature is fully evident.
We just don't see it.
We get caught up in thoughts, emotions and habits. We get stuck on identity, appearances and our situation. It is not that we are far away from the result we are seeking. It is more that we cannot recognize that which is right before us.
It is kind of like not being able to see you own eyelashes. They are right there.
We have a tendency to complicate the path. Really it is quite simple-
Tame your mind.
