Buddhism: The path

Too many philosophies and schools teach you mainly what is good.
It is like telling you only about a beautiful place. Enticing you.
Thus many people want to get there. But they don’t know how.
And so many people pretend that they have reached the destination. Many people pretend that they are good and holy and noble when their actions and intentions are not.
The world becomes a confusing one of moral theorizing and moral rationalization.

The aim of Buddha’s teaching is the path.
Yes, the destination is great but it is the path that will get you there.
As long as you follow the path diligently, you will reach the destination.
This is the main aim of Buddha’s teaching.

How to be good is just as important as what is good.
Or probably more important.
