I have been searching for a long time for a method to enlightenment.
I have studied many paths… connected with several great spiritual masters…
Today I finally realized that, if there is a way out,
it is the way free of the analytical/ rational minds.
Any path, any activity, any theory or exercise of which the rational mind can have any awareness,
is just a side of a of a dichotomy, a yin or yang, a black or white.
It is just a type of energy.
The will, the un-bendable intention, the postulate, and all that,
which is above the energy composing the blueprint is what is going to get us out.
Self remembering. The recognition without judgment or evaluation, to be part of an illusion, a dream
is the key.
The skill, and the strength necessary to not get involved with any part of it
are a must.
I saw an amazing movie recently called : “Inception”
♣ “Everything is real to the mind.
You can be sitting in many dreams, and believe, as suggested, they are all real.
And so you laugh, suffer and fight, for an un-existent cause…
and never have time to wake up.
Brilliant isn’t it? “ ♣
♣J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life♣
“You have the flash of understanding, that extraordinary rapidity of insight, when the mind is very still, when thought is absent, when the mind is not burdened with its own noise. So, the understanding of anything -of a modern picture, of a child, of your wife, of your neighbor, or the understanding of truth, which is in all things- can only come when the mind is very still. But such stillness cannot be cultivated because if you cultivate a still mind, it is not a still mind, it is a dead mind.
The more you are interested in something, the more your intention to understand, the more simple, clear, free the mind is.
Then verbalization ceases. After all, thought is word, and it is the word that interferes. It is the screen of words, which is memory, that intervenes between the challenge and the response. It is the word that is responding to the challenge, which we call intellection. So, the mind that is chattering, that is verbalizing, cannot understand truth -truth in relationship, not an abstract truth. There is no abstract truth. But truth is very subtle. It is the subtle that is difficult to follow. It is not abstract.
It comes so swiftly, so darkly, it cannot be held by the mind. Like a thief in the night, it comes darkly, not when you are prepared to receive it. Your reception is merely an invitation of greed. So a mind that is caught in the net of words cannot understand truth. –
