17:Benefits Cover or Hide The Truth

Those who meditate must stop seeking to gain benefits through meditation. If they seek to gain some benefits through meditation, they will most likely be able to get what they are seeking. Once they do, they will be satisfied; but only for a moment. The benefit they gained will inevitably disappear. The more I sought after benefits, the further from the truth I became. When I realized my true self, I realized that that it goes beyond any benefits. It exists forever, everywhere, and never disappears. The true self will appear when I stop asking for benefits through meditation.
