Buddha-nature? Original enlightenment?

To label a piece of land "an island" might prevent (by taking the attention away, in the search for a "solution") from seeing that it is in fact a peninsula, when the tide is low.

To qualify a river as "impassable" might prevent (by taking the attention away, in the search for a "solution") from seeing that there exists a ford.

What is the consequence of considering oneself "far" from Nirvāṇa? Maybe wasting the current possibility of attainment, by turning the attention toward the search for a "solution"!
