    While I do not claim to be enlightened , awakened, or even a spiritually developed person, I can testify 100% that your statement is absolutely true, no doubt about it. I wrote about this, or from this, realization in a recent essay Waking Up Hurts, and expressed my surprise that this was so. I am being deconstructed by the minute, “complete eradication” is no exaggeration. Thank you for making this even more clear

    • Really disconcerting, isn’t it? I can only keep asking myself for grace and wisdom, and try to keep some strength while going through this crazy “dismantelling.”

      Zen, (and company) again, thanks for being here!

  2. PHEW!!! Thank goodness! I was starting to think I was in the wrong place!

    Peace and Protection, my Friends!!!!

  3. And in the end all the love you take is equal to the love you make. Make big-heart love, it is a destructive force of huge beauty, though damn it, yes, it hurts. Thank you, Zen, and all here for making the destruction bearable. Love, A.

  4. The concept of enlightenment as a super high is one of the most devious concepts around. It sets up a lie-back-an-enjoy-it attitude as the TPTB machine rolls over you. It’s been endorsed by the controllers through countless millennia because it debilitates and diverts you from the Truth.

    Even Nibbana has been downgraded into the name of a pop group.

    The answers are in you Gentlewarriors.
    Do you have the courage to remain in the present long enough to know them?

    And then to act on what you have experienced to be true.

    Haaaaa! that’s what’s new this time around

  5. Enlightenment is total destruction of the individual ego in search of the source of our reality but it is not our reality in life. Finding the source is not the end, it is just the beginning of finding true happiness and knowing how to make our life better. Living life while aware of our source is a divine life, enlightenment is the beginning and end of life.

  6. yes, very true. I keep spooning off all my rubbish — I sense a pure distilled mind buried in there. just keep peeling through and let the light shine through, that’s all I can do for now.
    Love to all.

  7. Great quote! I’d add, that right now those of us dealing with this are swimming against the tide in society. Maybe that’s what the shift is, right now we are against the tide and it’s difficult, but when the tide shifts, we are swimming the right way and those that are swimming with the tide now, will be working harder, so we’ll be there to pull them along.

  8. This is from the “Hidden Words” of Baha’u’llah:

    49. O SON OF MAN!

    The true lover yearneth for tribulation even as doth the rebel for forgiveness and the sinful for mercy.

  9. reminds me of ramana maharshi’s (roughly)”the stick stirs the funeral pyre until it is burning brightly and the stick is consumed in the process”
