Illusory Advice: Solutions

"When you are working within a lineage of practice you allow the lineage to be bigger than you. Through embracing the greater view of the lineage and path of practice, you can let go of referentiality and free yourself from the limitations of your own solutions. By remaining open to the view of the teacher you can avoid defaulting to finding your own solutions preferable to the suggestions indicated by the teacher, lineage, and practice. The scope of your own perspective can be more comfortable, but sometimes rather limited. Practitioners avoid going for the comfort of limited view and embrace the potentially unsettling challenge of the vastly more expansive view of the teacher, lineage, and practice."
