the point of Buddhism

Trickling down individually and then temporarily pooling as one came the thoughts:

The point of Buddhism is not "Buddhism."

The point of Buddhism is you.

If the point of Buddhism were "Buddhism," it would become rotten and cruel and useless -- another entry on an imaginary resume.

It is only because of you that Buddhism is fresh and nourishing and dances.

No (wo)man can be limited by the dead fruit of "Buddhism" or "Christianity" or "Islam."

Which is not to say that "Buddhism" can't lend a hand from time to time.

A waltz is a waltz even when it's a "waltz."
