You Are It
We have the habit of always looking outside ourselves, thinking we can get wisdom and compassion from another person or the Buddha or his teachings (Dharma) or our community (Sangha). But you are the Buddha, you are the Dharma, you are the Sangha.

we must strive to expose it

From the promise land in Lipscomb Alabama
Where golden eagle table syrup and buffalo rock
And the train whistle blows
