Green Coconut Oneness #323
The problem of the over-zealous seeker courting a premature attitude that assumes too much too soon, is taken to task in this dharma art wisdom chart. This false assumption taken on by an ongoing cross-section of callow living beings is lent clarity via the analogy of the green coconut that is one solid mass prior to ripening, eventually breaking into several layers upon maturity. This is likened to the beginning spiritual aspirant who hears the truth of the oneness of all existence, then assumes to know it himself prior to undergoing the disciplinary practices and purification that reveals, then separates out the layers of ignorance that still persist in his mind. Put another way, the seasoned spiritual adept does not mistake the copra-like layers of relativity for the milk-essence of pure, conscious Awareness.
