Don't take anything seriously, EVEN ENLIGHTENMENT



















There is NOTHING to learn, you don't need time to be what you already are, just sit still




Edited by Shin

If you want the moon, do not hide from the night
If you want a rose, do not run from the thorns
If you want love, do not hide from yourself

We are already Enlightened we simply created ourselves in this way to come here and play and experiment how it feels to be separated from infinity and see if we can find our way back without having the memory of our divinity activated. This is the magnificent masterpiece we created.

This is one of my favourite quotes. It relates to life purpose, esp when you are able to incorporate non-duality in it. It really completes the person. 

Here is another one:

Are you seeking love? Do you think you have a solid, beautiful man or woman to have and to hold in your arms everyday?


Well, guess again! Life is an optical illusion. Yes, if you know enlightenment, there are "correct" ways and "incorrect" ways of loving.

The battle for truth

Is waged upon untruth.

When the flames have consumed all,

and the smoke has cleared,

Only truth remains.

Destroy everything. Burn it all.

Incinerate even your heart.

Throw your soul into the furnace.

This is the Great Conflagration.

Nothing false will survive.

Nothing true will perish.

This is the process.

This is the war.

The battlefield is you.

The battle is absolute.

If you don’t like it,

don’t do it.

It will always be here,


Jed Mckenna ~



My birthplace is placelessness,

My sign is to have and give no sign.

You say you see my mouth, ears, eyes, nose;

they are not mine.

I am the life of life.

I am that cat, this stone, no one.

I have thrown duality away like an old dishrag,

I see and know all times and worlds,

As one, one, always one.




“Suffering just means you’re having a bad dream. Happiness means you’re having a good dream. Enlightenment means getting out of the dream altogether.”



“It is your show, it is your universe. There is no one else here, just you, and nothing is being withheld from you. You are completely on your own. Everything is available for direct knowing. No one else has anything you need. No one else can lead you, pull you, push you or carry you.”


“The bottom line remains the same: you’re either awake or you’re not.One day, there it is. Nothing. No more enemies, no more battles.”


“Enlightenment is the unprogrammed state.”


“All fear is ultimately fear of no-self.”




I am He.

I am The Sage.

I am The Superior Man.

I am the Crown of Creation.

I am daft, clouded, obscure.

I eat when hungry, sleep when tired.

I move with; not across, not against.

I rub my chin at the appointed hour.

I see only patterns.

I have no eye for detail.

I don’t go. Why go? Go where? It comes.

I don’t try. I don’t do. Nothing goes undone.

I don’t take sides. I have no preferred outcome.

It’s all me. It’s all mine.

Otherless, what’s to want?

I have amazing powers!

I get good tables in restaurants.

I haven’t stubbed a toe in twelve years.

I can destroy the universe with a thought.



The great path has no gates,

thousands of roads enter it.

When you pass through this gateless gate

you walk the universe alone.





Die while you’re alive

and be absolutely dead.

Then do whatever you want:

it’s all good.





Row, row, row your boat,

Gently down the stream.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,

Life is but a dream.




The truth is that enlightenment is neither remote

nor unattainable. It is closer than your skin and more

immediate than your next breath. If we wonder why so

few seem able to find that which can never be lost, we

might recall the child who was looking in the light for a

coin he dropped in the dark because “the light is better

over here.”



The universe seems to me infinitely strange and foreign.

At such a moment I gaze upon it with a mixture of

anguish and euphoria; separate from the universe, as

though placed at a certain distance outside it; I look and

I see pictures, creatures that move in a kind of timeless

time and spaceless space, emitting sounds that are a kind

of language I no longer understand or even register.

Eugène Ionesco



Well, I am certainly wiser than this man. It is only too likely

that neither of us has any knowledge to boast of; but he

thinks that he knows something which he does not know,

whereas I am quite conscious of my ignorance. At any rate

it seems that I am wiser than he is to this small extent,

that I do not think that I know what I do not know.




Reality is merely an illusion, albeit

a very persistent one. –Albert Einstein



Perhaps the deepest reason why we are afraid of death

is because we do not know who we are. We believe in a

personal, unique, and separate identity – but if we dare

to examine it, we find that this identity depends entirely

on an endless collection of things to prop it up: our name,

our “biography,” our partners, family, home, job, friends,

credit cards... It is on their fragile and transient support

that we rely for our security. So when they are all taken

away, will we have any idea of who we really are?

Without our familiar props, we are faced with just

ourselves, a person we do not know, an unnerving

stranger with whom we have been living all the time but

we never really wanted to meet. Isn’t that why we have

tried to fill every moment of time with noise and activity,

however boring or trivial, to ensure that we are never left

in silence with this stranger on our own?

Sogyal Rinpoche



I ask you only to stop imagining that you were born,

have parents, are a body, will die and so on. Just try,

make a beginning – it is not as hard as you think.

Nisargadatta Maharaj



The spiritual journey does not consist of arriving at a new

destination where a person gains what he did not have,

or becomes what he is not. It consists in the dissipation of

one’s own ignorance concerning oneself and life, and the

gradual growth of that understanding which begins the

spiritual awakening.

Aldous Huxley



The most useful piece of learning for the

uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.




Beyond our ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing,

there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

Nothing takes the seriousness away like the capslocked font size 5000 text in bold.:P

Join this monthly gathering to be the resolution to the world's troubles, and not another person that perceives a reality as a project that needs constant fixing.
