If you want to know something, go elsewere

If you want to un-know everything, then sit and listen


En ny upptäckt för mig, klippen på youTube är härliga. Ett måste för de som är intresserade av så kallad Andlighet, uppvaknande eller upplysning. Lite mer av honom, på Engelska:

Realizing Your True Nature

Awakening to the truth is a deep realization of what you are as an experience. What is it that is feeling? What is it that is thinking or sensing? This is not about coming up with the right name for it, so don’t name it for a moment. It’s about just noticing, just experiencing. Feel it. Sense it. Welcome it. Spiritual awakening is realizing what occupies the space called “me.” When you listen innocently, you’ll see that there really is something more here than a me.

Your me is always experiencing this moment in relation to some other moment. Is this moment as good as it was two weeks ago? Will it be the same today as it was yesterday? The me worries about what it knows and whether or not it is good enough to get enlightened. Your me might call itself Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Advaitan, atheist, agnostic, believer, or nonbeliever, but no matter what your me is identified with, when you become very open and relaxed, you can suddenly be aware that something else is occupying your body-mind. Something else is looking out from your eyes, listening from your ears, and feeling your feelings.

That something has no qualities. Realizing your true nature is realizing what is present without qualities. We can call it the emptiness of consciousness, the Self, or the No-Self. To directly experience this emptiness—the aliveness of it—is spiritual awakening. It is to realize yourself as beautiful nothingness, or more accurately, no-thing-ness. If we say it’s just “nothing,” we miss the point.

Vilken bra distinktion - your true nature isn't NOTHINGNESS, it's NO-THING-NESS. Något av det värdefullaste Adyashanti lär är vikten av att inte haka upp sig på ord. Han byter hela tiden ord för det han vill förmedla, testar hela tiden nya vinklar, pekar från nya oväntade håll inifrån språket, och denna kreativitet resulterar i många guldkorn - NO-THING-NESS är ett sådant ...
