Re: When Enough is Finally Enough, living Denuded of Extrapolation or Fear as the Final Frontier
Of course, exploration, discovery and the disseminating of new or different ideas can be provacativly helpful and healthy. Furthermore as we discover and explore we should also increase our natural discernment and at some point realize that some activities lead to more suffering and some lead to the end of suffering, and that knowing the difference between each leads to wisdom.
Len like Icke and others, share interesting, unconventional, and often very healthy new discoveries and revelations on "things" (tho many are still strictly suppositions, considered and promoted as facts). Their particular bent, while as mentioned, often stresses compassionate consideration, too often fuels our penchant to error with reasons to split the straw that is intended to outweigh and free the burdened from the load. From insect to man, from infant to adult we struggle until we let go of that which we fear to lose, finding in that release, the allways perfect enough. Beyond time and times, frequencies and fear. Presence is, Life's Nutrition, Ego's Summation, Love's Flavor.
Feel it all and thinking disappears
Allow it all and knowing disappears
Give it all and everything disappears
from Seng-T'san (6thCent)
Living is not difficult
for those who have no preferences where
everything is clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction, however,
and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
When the deep meaning of things is not understood,
the minds essential peace is disturbed to no avail.
If you wish to see the truth
then hold no opinions for or against anything.
To set up what you like against what you dislike
is the disease of the mind.
The Way of Being, is perfect, like vast space
where nothing is lacking and nothing is in excess.
Indeed, it is due to our choosing to accept or reject
that we do not see the true nature of things.
To deny the reality of things
is to miss their reality;
To assert the emptiness of things
is to miss their reality.
When you try to stop activity with passivity
your very effort fills you with activity.
As long as you remain in one extreme or the other
you will never find release.
Live neither in the entanglements of outer things,
nor in inner feelings of emptiness.
Be serene in the oneness of things and such
erroneous views will disappear by themselves.
The more you talk and think about it,
the further astray you wander from the truth.
Stop talking and thinking,
and there is nothing you will not be able to know.
To return to the root is to find meaning,
but to pursue appearances is to miss the source.
At the moment of inner enlightenment
there is a going beyond appearance and emptiness.
The changes that appear to occur in the empty world
we call real only because of our ignorance.
Do not search for the truth;
only cease to cherish opinions.
If you do not discriminate between coarse and fine
you will not be tempted to prejudice and opinion.
Although all dualities come from the One,
do not be attached even to this One.
When the mind exists undisturbed,
nothing in the world can offend.
And when a thing can no longer offend,
it ceases to exist in the old way.
When no discriminating thoughts arise,
the old mind ceases to exist.
When thought objects vanish,
the thinking-subject vanishes:
As when the mind vanishes, objects vanish.
To live peacefully is neither easy nor difficult.
But those with limited views are fearful and irresolute:
the faster they hurry, the slower they go.
And clinging cannot be limited:
Even to be attached to the idea of enlightenment
is to go astray.
Just let things be in their own way
and there will be neither coming not going.
Obey the nature of things
and you will walk freely and undisturbed.
When thought fuels our bondage the truth is hidden
and everything is murky and unclear.
And the burdensome practice of judging
brings annoyance and weariness.
If you wish to move in the Being Way
do not dislike even the world of senses and ideas.
Indeed, to accept them fully
is identical with enlightenment.
The wise man strives to no goals
but the foolish man fetters himself.
There is one Truth, not many.
from the clinging needs of the ignorant.
To seek Mind with the mind
is the greatest of all mistakes.
Rest and unrest derive from illusion;
there is no liking and disliking.
All dualities come from ignorant inference.
They are like dreams or flowers in air -
foolish to try to grasp them.
Gain and loss, right and wrong,
such thoughts will
finally be absolved.
If the eye never sleeps,
all dreams will naturally cease.
If the mind makes no discriminations,
the ten thousand things are as they are,
of single essence.
To understand the mystery of this One-essence
is to be released from all entanglements.
When all things are seen equally
the timeless Self-essence is reached,
No comparisons or analogies are possible
in this causeless, relationless state.
Consider movement stationary
and the stationary in motion,
both movement and rest disappear.
When such dualities cease to exist
Oneness itself cannot exist.
To this ultimate finality
no law or description applies.
For the relaxed mind in accord with Being
all self-centered striving ceases.
Doubts and irresolutions vanish
and life in true faith is possible.
With a single stroke we are freed from all dilemma:
Nothing clings to us and we hold to nothing.
All is empty, clear, self-illuminating,
with no exertion of the minds power.
Here thought, feeling,
knowledge and imagination are of no value.
In this world of suchness
there is neither self nor other-than-self,
nothing is separate,
nothing is excluded.
No matter when or where,
enlightenment means entering this truth.
And this truth is beyond extension
or diminution in time and space:
In it a single thought is ten thousand years.
the infinite universe
stands always before our eyes.
Infinitely large and infinitely small;
no difference, for definitions have vanished
and no boundaries are seen.
Don't waste time in doubts and arguments
That have nothing to do with this.
One thing, all things,
move among and intermingle without distinction.
To live in this realization
is to be without anxiety about non-perfection.
To live in this faith is the road to non-duality,
because the non-dual is one with the trusting mind.
The Way is beyond language,
for in it there is
