"We're like waves looking for the ocean. And when the waves hear about a meeting they say, "Let's go to that meeting because wise people are there who'll tell us where the ocean is". The waves are just the ocean waving. There's no such thing as an enlightened person who "knows" the ocean. When you cease looking for the ocean, the ocean is seen. As long as there's a seeker looking for the ocean, the seeker and the ocean seem to remain apart. When the seeking falls away, there is simply ocean."
