The Ego and Enlightenment

The Ego and Enlightenment

I am not here to tell you what you want to hear, there are many others who can tell you that. I am only here to tell you the truth. In my many years of study and contemplation I have come to understand that the way of esoteric revelation is an extremely profound process of initiation. One cannot read a few books and thereby become enlightened. There will never be a time were you will not have to do sadhana; there will never be a time were you will not be a devotee, as ultimate enlightenment requires one to be an exemplary devotee. There is no other way, as one must sacrifice themselves to God. If you are manifested bodily, you will have to do sadhana relative to your separate existence regardless of what spiritual experience you have. There is no experience of consciousness; the one who apparently experiences enlightenment is the illusory separate self. The experience of enlightenment is the illusion of the ego. Enlightenment transcends experience. In Truth, nobody exists to experience anything. Enlightenment is the inherent enjoyment of reality, the ego is not capable of this enjoyment! The ego cannot grasp the nature of reality, enlightenment is truly realized when the ego is transcended. This is why the guru is so important, for satsang with the guru is the means by which the ego is made irrelevant. Through the process of this satsang, happiness is increasingly enjoyed and understanding becomes more profound. The ego seeks to be gratified in it’s search for enlightenment, this is why it is not achieved by the one who is seeking it. One cannot do it on one’s own, as it is the ego that desires to achieve enlightenment by its own merit. In the enjoyment of satsang one transcends oneself. The true benefits of enlightenment are embraced through this realization.

Radiate Like a Flower

Radiate Like a Flower

Why doesn’t a flower demonstrate the qualities of contraction in the face of its inevitable temporariness? A flower never exuberates the signs of suffering in regards to death. It is simply a flower! It just continues to be radiant despite its impermanence. It is what it is in the midst of the moment. It does not exist separate from itself. It is always the “me” or the “I” that is looking to the past or the future, it is this individuation that is causing our suffering. The flower does not have this, it is simply radiant. Transcend the “I” and you will radiate like a flower.

 




Attachment to Illusions

Attachment to Illusions

In general, most people do not want God realization. In fact, most westerners have never been interested in God realization. For the most part, people are interested in consolation. They want to be told that they are not going to have to let go of everything. They are attracted to people who will make them feel safe and secure in their familiar illusions. This is one way in which we avoid the Truth. The expression of suffering in this case is the dramatization of attachment to temporary objects. That which is impermanent is not worth clinging to!
