How It Works.

Knowing Reality, and how Reality works, is all a human ever needs to know.

Almost as soon as a human is born, he begins packing information into his head. It comes from many sources, almost none of which know anything about Reality and how Reality works.
Throughout a human's life, this packing-in of information continues, until his poor head becomes like a rock-filled backpack, making him top-heavy, unbalanced, and crazy.
Lucky indeed is the man who finally dumps it all, and floats away, unencumbered.

Dharma: What it is, and how it works.
How it works, in this instance, refers not to knowing about the mechanics of the thing, or the theory behind it.
It refers to an appreciation that it does work, and will reliably continue to work, completely independently of human intervention.
Reality works.

You can choose to get with the program, and seamlessly integrate with it, or view it from the outside, like a movie, where any bad stuff is merely fictitious, and there are no consequences.

Dharma involves submission, of the voluntary kind. Because that is the way it works. To actually live life, is to include oneself within it.
Chill, man. Relax. The only thing you really need to do is become aware of the most overlooked treasure of all:
The breathtaking gift of being alive, of living, at all.

I wonder if anybody understood a word of this OP.
Most probably: not.

I'm totally confused. I think you are asking people to choose a different path for their life rather than following the same practice. :)

Just illustrating that there IS a different path.
