What is there to practice? Every practice is just ignorant mind thinking that it is practicing something. But this is just a game of mind. The only real practice should be a practice of no mind but that can never be a deliberate practice. Everything is really nothing so what do we practice ?

There are these Zen words: "Just this single ignorant ember - work it into supreme humanity". Ignorance means the ego not being aware. In order to accomplish the Buddhist path, become aware of your desires and burn them completely, then for the first time the path opens and you can enter the state of mind of satori. A buddha does not become enlightened. Because a buddha from the beginning does not enter the path of training. Yet seeing the pain in the world, we want to do something. And from there we cannot stop half way.
