Who is the wise person who knows the secret?

Who is the wise person who knows the secret?

“The Buddha told you: ‘You are the world.’ You create the world you live in. Yet, you have to find this for yourself. Listen carefully. Not just to what I’m saying, but to some wise person that YOU think knows the secret. You can go to the library, you can find the Truth. You can go to the church of your choice and find it. You can go to a Kahuna and find it. You can go anywhere in the world, and once you know what Truth is, you’ll hear it spoken all over the world. You’ll hear it on a day-to-day basis.” Syd Banks

Student: “How can I find the truth?”
Master: “You won’t find it if you move around in search of it.”
Student: “Who is the wise person who knows the secret?”
Master: “Only a wise man can recognise him. You should become wise to see him.”
Student: “How can I become wise?”
Master: “See the wise man inside you.”
Student: “Why does he advise us to go to see wise people and go to the library?”
Master: “Try to see the wise man inside you and ask yourself instead of going to the library. Why should we bother to wander in search of what is everywhere all over the world?”
Student: “What is it like?”
Master: “It is exactly like you.”

The truth is like you, like me, like a dog, like a mountain,
because you, I, dog and mountain are all part of the truth.
There is nothing that is not the truth.
