IT POSSIBLE to write a definition of enlightenment
is consistent with definitions in major traditions,
major traditions are in fact nothing but concepts.
real question, is what is this phenomenon called "Enlightenment"
describes actual enlightened people?
presumes, that, there are in fact enlightened "people".
could be more erroneous.
entity can ever be or has been ever, enlightened.
in certain body-mind complexes, there has been the non-volitional, acausal
"occurrence" where the process of entitification has ended, has been
"me-entity" is no more........ and thus in such body-mind complexes,
there is then no entity, left to affirm, confirm or describe (objectify) the
popular media may label such body-mind complexes as "Enlightened
Masters" or "Sages", but that's all the network rating games.
Enlightenment is the state in which
you are permanently free from identification with your ego.
Who is left to note this freeing from identification?
Freedom from X,Y, Z, .....is still acknowledging the
existential reality of X, Y, Z, isn't it?
Does the ego exist, ..............such that there is a
state which can be said is freed from the ego?
What is ego?
And why is it supposed the baddest of the baddies?
This means you are free from the
normal compulsion to fantasize continuously about people, situations, and
objects. You act and think without feeling like a doer or thinker.
Rather than "you act and think without feeling
like a doer or thinker" (thinking you are not a doer, you are the doer of
this thinking, isn't it), .......
.....there is an apperception, not perception but
.........that all doing is a doing "through"
a body-mind complex, including the body-mind complex of the sage, as nuances of
the Totality of Impersonal functioning.
In the sage there is an apperception that
"We" do not live.
"We" are lived.
You have no anxiety. You usually
have no thoughts.
A "sage" is not a lobotomized idiot.
Fear may still arise, but not anxiety.
Anxiety is,..... fear not accepted.
Thoughts may still arise, ..................they are
seen a particular form of that same Impersonal functioning "through" a
There is a profound change in your
sense of what "I" means.
Change is a phenomenon within duality.
If I is the Alpha and I is the
Omega,.........simultaneously, can we say a change has happened?
The waking horse stands
The sleeping horse also stands.
The changes of waking and sleeping and then waking,
...........does not alter the basic standing attribute of the horse.
Similarly the appearing and disappearing of
phenomenality, does not in any way alter the intrinsicity of that whose
objective expressings are the appearing and disappearing.
When these things become habitual
and effortless, you are enlightened.
A "you" is never enlightened.
The end of the "you", which can only be the
end of "me",......... is that-which-IS.
not completely satisfied with this definition -- the phrase profound change in your sense of what "I" means is
particularly weasely -- and we're hoping you can help us improve it.
non-volitional, acausal end of the entity which seeks anything, including
enlightenment, (however defined),.......... is the state of Dobeeee Dobeeee
this is a conceptual statement, .........for really neither the un-enlightened
seeker( hence having the need to seek enlightenment), neither the seeking, and
neither the sought, ..........nothing of all this, has ever taken place.
fun and games in a dream-sequence.
much different to the profound ethos and pathos of your night-sleep-dream.
next morning, sipping from a hot cup of tea, ......
happens to those profound ethos and pathos of last night's dream, which were so
real to you, while they were "existing" in your dream, .....
ado, the drama of your dream, that made you laugh in joy and weep in despair,
cry in sorrow, break out in cold sweat, even sexually ejaculate .....
while sleeping soundly.
Sipping from a hot cup of tea, is Enlightenment.
