If you put a teaspoon full of vinegar or maple syrup into a shot glass half full of water the vinegar glass would be bitter to drink and the syrup glass noticeably sweet.
Do the same experiment with a teaspoon full of each and a water glass half full of water.
Then do it again with a bucket of water.
Then an ocean.
Its still just a teaspoon full.
But its not exactly like that i would guess.
Someone please rescue this line of thinking with a better analogy
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/thai ... eleft.html
