Ones Own Microscope

What is important is to get beyond the pattern of mental concepts which we have formed. That does not mean that we have to create a new pattern or try to be particularly unconventional and always go without lunch or what-have-you . . . . .That would not particularly solve the problem. The only way to solve the problem is by examining it thoroughly. . . . .One must learn to be a skilful scientist and not accept anything at all. Everything must be seen through ones own microscope and one has to reach ones own conclusions in ones own way. Until we do that, there is no savior, no guru, no blessings, and no guidance which could be of any help.

— From “The Life and Example of Buddha,” in Meditation in Action, page13. 1970 edition.
