true human, being

sometimes todd paints houses, originally uploaded by emdot.

Spiritual truth is not something elaborate and esoteric, it is in fact profound common sense. When you realize the nature of mind, layers of confusion peel away. You don’t actually “become” a buddha, you simply cease, slowly, to be deluded. And being a buddha is not being some omnipotent spiritual superman, but becoming at last a true human being. — sogyal rinpoche

At the risk of sounding a complete idiot, that's a very beautiful t-shirt. Make a high-def scan and start a Cafepress shop to sell them.
