Right now, take a look at what you've taken yourself to be.
You take yourself to be an individual, sitting there, reading a blog. You have a beginning and will have an end.
You are seeking something, enlightenment or freedom from suffering. You are reading because there is a hope that something will click, something will make sense, something will happen.
But you must be standing upon a platform of assumptions - there must be a separate person to achieve enlightenment. There must be a separate person who is reading. There must be a separate person for whom something will click.
So just stop and look at what is going on. You are seeking a "state" where there is no separation - you - the individual - are seeking a "state" where there is no individual. You - the individual - are seeking a "state" where the individual is NOT.
How can you resolve this? Can an individual see that there IS no individual? So what are you doing? Why are you seeking? Why are you wasting your time reading this blog?
An individual cannot see that there is no individual.
So what is the point? What is all the fuss about? What the Hell is the point of any of it?
With the existing assumption, that you are an individual doing this, it's a chinese finger trap - the harder you pull, the tighter it gets. The more you seek, the stronger the illusion of the seeker becomes.
So give up! What is the use? As an individual, you will NEVER find what you're seeking, because the answer would require YOU to be non-existent. But there you are, reading, seeking...
The only possible alternative is that the individual isn't actually there - that it's just a translation, a false sensation, a false identification. The only possible alternative is that the individual is ALREADY false.
That would mean that THIS, right here and now, is ALREADY what's being sought after. That would mean that THIS, right here and now, is ALREADY IT. But we don't want to hear that, do we? We don't want THIS to be it, because we think THIS is SHIT - we think THIS is something to be rid of, some speed bump on the way to enlightenment.
As long as we want it to be about something different, something better, something MORE than THIS, right here and now, that YOU-THE-INDIVIDUAL are seeking, then the only alternative is to give up.
As long as the search is undertaken from the perspective of the individual, it's all bullshit - it's a recurring lie - it's a ME who wants enlightenment - it's a ME looking for Oneness. That's always going to be false, no matter how it's sliced and diced, no matter how much the honesty is swept under the rug, no matter how many times THIS is overlooked in preference for some special spiritual state.
THIS is it. Just THIS and nothing else. Is there any room for an individual in THIS?
What can possibly be done to bring about the end of THAT which is already FALSE?
