@Leo Gura Leo, as I commented above, I would like to know why enlightened masters are saying that to you. There must be some reasons. I don't believe they're saying it just for the heck of it. I wish they help us to understand better in detail.

1) Do not judge a book by it's cover

2) The more puffed up it is, the less essence there is (usually)


''Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather''

  • The more you accept not knowing rather than seek an answer, the more likely it is you’ll actually truly get the answer
  • The more truly empty you are, the more full you feel
  • The more cheese you get, the more hungry you are (rat/maze analogy)
  • The more happiness you seek “out there”, the less likely you’ll be happy
  • The less challenge you’re faced with, the more likely you’ll fall apart
  • The more acceptance you seek from others, the less you accept yourself
  • The more you gratify pleasure to feel happy, the more pleasure you end up needing to seek
  • Being totally by yourself with absolutely nothing and sitting still is a hallmark test for happiness, fulfillment, self acceptance, and love
  • Success has nothing to do with fulfillment
  • Manipulation doesn’t mean you know how people work
  • Anger isn’t a legitimate emotion
  • Believing the earth is round is not the same as directly knowing the earth is round 
  • Everything about one’s own “individuality” is an invention and is totally arbitrary
  • Everything is all one thing in yet reality seems dualistic
  • We have no free will in yet our lives don’t change unless we make a choice
  • Every religion is true in yet they fight over their differences
  • The more truth you speak, the more likely you’ll be demonized, called a liar and deluded.

  • It’s counterintuitive that the most selfish you become the less self accepting you are
  • Its counterintuitive that the most “evil” people are the people need the most love
