There is Buddha in each of us right now who can never be defeated by the force of inner darkness, the force of greed, hate, attachment, and delusion, and that Buddha has no form, no image. That Buddha, indeed, is residing in all of us as our pure, quintessential being.
We must always turn our attention inward whenever we have the desire to seek divinity, the divine, or Buddha, God, or Brahma. This desire to seek something divine happens quite a lot, especially when we are spiritual. From now on, whenever that desire arises, we might want to remember to immediately turn the attention inward, knowing…that whatever we are seeking is already inside.
