Enlightenment for Dummies

Q: Would you say that by giving names or labels to everything that creates a sense of separation or a mind?

That's right, giving names and labels to everything is the only "problem" you've got! You cannot think a single thought about anything whatsoever, unless you have an idea about it, a mental concept, a learned name for it, that you have acquired or learned as a young child, from either your parents, from school, growing up with friends etc... that is the mental conditioning. If you don't have a name or a mental concept about something, can you think a single thought about it? Of course not! It just is.

All thoughts are simply used as a labeling tool, to label and translate what is, with acquired concepts. You must learned the concept first about something, for you to be able to think about it, that is why acquired knowledge is the greatest ignorance. It is all add on, you were not born with these ideas and names, they were all acquired since.

These acquired ideas, names and concepts over time seemingly makes you overlook the pure actuality of what is and creates the belief in a phantom entity made of words, names and labels, that we call the "me", "mind" or "ego". All these learned labels, names and mental conceptualization, are simply what creates the illusion of a mind to be present, a seeming separate entity or personal doer, made of thoughts, names and words, with no real substance and independent power to do anything.

Realize that there is really no separate entity present whatsoever, there never was one present in you at any time, apart from the labeling thoughts that we use to translate what is. That is the false "veil" of separation, the illusion that you have to see through, and realize the phantom mind to be the false and none existent, a mirage or bundle of thoughts with no power or reality.

For example a one year old child sees exactly the same things that you see. Same Awareness is present in him and you, no difference whatsoever. The subtle difference is that he has no mind at that age, no acquired intellect or knowledge has been learned yet, so he is empty from concepts and from a reference point, he is functioning naturally and spontaneously from his natural state of pure Awareness. His true nature is registering everything exactly the same as you right now, effortlessly but with no learned names, and with no learned labels he cannot think a thought about it. It just what is, the pure non-conceptual actuality for him, just as it is! Everything is naturally registered effortlessly, every instant as is, on non-conceptual Awareness, his true nature.

So again, no thoughts present, no mind present, in that moment your are mindless, you are prior to the mind and everything is effortlessly registered naturally on pure presence-awareness or your natural state, just like for the little child, just as is!

Very simple and effortless, every time you don't label anything, you are beyond the mind! So easy and so simple, just as you are, you yourself when you pause a thought for a moment, you are fully there, fully your true nature, fully "enlightened", without trying to be, nothing more to it! It is your natural state of presence, you cannot escape it at any time, that you like it or not, you are already whole, already complete and already "enlightened". You have no choice in the matter, it is your ever-present unchanging true nature.

So again, pause a thought for a moment and you are "enlightened", again pause a thought for a moment, you are "enlightened", do it a few times, it is fun, it is like a simple course of "enlightenment for Dummies", for you are already whole and always have been totally "enlightened".

Now you can have a good laugh at yourself and relax, the search is over! Your true nature has always been present with you. Your ever-present true nature is seemingly covered up every time you bring up a thought about something.

Realize that thinking it is just a natural movement of thoughts and that you are always fully aware and fully present as your natural unchanging presence of consciousness, with or without any thought present. You are "that" or the Awareness which is aware of thinking happening. It is all appearing and disappearing on the unchanging "you"! You are that ever-present unchanging natural "knowingness".

After all can you separate yourself from your own consciousness, your life essence or livingness? Can you stop your existence and the natural effortless functioning? Can you stop seeing? Can you stop hearing? Can you stop feeling? Can you stop smelling? Can you stop your heart from beating? Can you stop the food in your stomach to be digested? Can you stop the blood from moving inside your veins? Can you stop being conscious and aware? Can you stop Being? Of course not, don't you see, your true nature, existence or Life is effortlessly present and naturally functioning and registering everything through you and as you.

Realize that with no effort whatsoever, without trying to, you are totally free and "enlightened" right now. That is the joke of it all! That is the simple realization and conclusion that the all great Sages and Saint came up to. You are already and always That, right here and now, just as you are!

The biggest flaw with this philosophy is that it ASSUMES that their is a true reality and that we are all capable of perceiving it as such.

The "true" reality is what you create it to be. It is the dream you step into

1 path...How is this done? By observing..By influencing.

The SSUN Project teaches how to do this.


P.s Sorry for Promoting it again.
