Illusory Advice: When is a dog…?

"Unenlightenment is a bit like thinking you are a dog and trying to be a human being, when in fact you already are human. Others can see that you are human—it is obvious to them—and cannot understand how you think you are a dog. You need to let go of dog-ness and discover that you are human. The effort—to continue the analogy—is to not dwell or wallow in dog-ness, but believe in the possibility of being human. Practise being human by trying to walk on two legs and visualising not being furry. This is a method until you actually discover that you are human. In that instant there can be no method, only realisation."
