Slightly better method even than self-inquiry:


1. Be still and quiet (or not).

2. Try not to be enlightened. It’s going to get you, and there’s no escape, but keep trying to prevent it at all costs — pay no attention to the fact that it’s inevitable. Simply try to escape it.

 

If you dare...

Great and fairly detailed introduction to Vedanta. Swartz is a brilliant teacher. That's in 16 parts totaling 16 hours, but it saves 16 years of your life.

Simply try to find what isn't happening by itself. Find what is not simply given to and from the void. Failure is success.

What seems to be happening is all that's wanted, but it's not you who wants it -- you can't want it -- you aren't there -- how could you want what's already happening, anyway? ;)

There is only pure, authentic innocence.
