Buddhism, let's say going from the conditioned to the unconditioned, is something like a high narrow ladder. Maybe some beings skip a rung or two on their way to realizing the recondite. Some look from the ground, and say neat ladder, and move on. Some reach too high and give up. Some shake the ladder and try to knock people down. Some on the higher rungs reach down to help others climb. Some people cling to a middle rung, having convinced themselves there is nowhere else to climb, or simply perhaps out of fear climb no higher. And some eventually realize there was never really any ladder, that it, like everything else, was only ever mind.
