Of course, actually finding those People is much more difficult than presuming to find knowledge, powers, skills and talents, because the seeker generally has not the understanding (being and experience) to even recognize them when in the same room.
Consider a small group of Friends who show up one afternoon at a Denny's, for an afternoon or evening meal and some (apparently) casual conversation. All the rest of the patrons and staff in that establishment will quite naturally presume that that small group is there for food and drink, primarily (with a little talk on the side) and thus only see them as ordinary Denny's Diners, but certainly NOT as "Walking Buddhas" (which must remain in quotation marks until one who CAN see them actually DOES so.)
It has also been known for hundreds of years that there are many People in America (and elsewhere of course) who have attained that status (and who, at times, have actually Dined at Denny's); who can blend in with the masses with great ease and alacrity, and who can only be seen by those of "right perception" - having activated their higher senses to the degree necessary to even recognize them.
Such is the search today on Earth. For People, and not for empty intangibles like knowledge, powers, skills and talents, which mean nothing except for the People who possess them and are willing to teach, and/or demonstrate.
Personally, I have known at least five such "Walkers" who possessed reams more Knowledge, Powers, Talents and Skills than any book (or post, message, tweet, or whatever you want to call all that written stuff covering the planet ten times over today), that was ever written. And, what's even better than that, more Essential Information can be shared by such People in one afternoon, or evening, than could fill any book, and that's a fact Jack. Ninety-nine percent of what is written is just filler, anyway, leading up to and winding down from the supposed "good stuff" being presented, and that ninety-nine percent is NOT as necessary as it might seem to those who have never experienced such afternoons or evenings. And THAT is also a Fact Jack.
"Walking Buddhas" speak in code, and that code is often, even necessarily, unintelligible to those not in possession of the Keys - of which there may be many, which must be obtained, retrieved, discovered, even Invented or even Created - and are required in order to decipher in real time the secrets contained therein. Books, and all other written passages, fail at this most of the time - if not ALL of the time - whereas face-to-face conversations, demonstrations, instructions, etc., have much greater chance to succeed. So... you seekers out there... Seek and you shall Find**... specifically..
