but we are IN reality.

awareness awares THIS very real and very substanital reality.

regardless if we want it to or not.

We are noy IN reality. We are reality itself.

Accept your self, accept reality.

Now heres the paradox. Dont accept 'no choice', you have no choice.

Perfect paradox. Who needs paradise.

What are you doing up at this time anyway.

If you are on this path to narrow things down to a manageable level, to gain control of yourself, or to gain some sort of power,  you will surely be dissapointed.

If you hope to broaden your horizons and ultimately attain total freedom, needing nothing, wanting nothing, being nothing, you might just do that.

Then the sweet smile of the Buddha will be something you share.

ACTUALLY its both don.

the yin AND the yang.

to gain power and control over ones own mind is paramount.

to focus and have pinpointedness of mind is paramount.

being nothing is stupid.

im shayne.

and freedom of mind means youve discovered your own mind and are now free with it. to look anywhere you want. to discuss anything you want. to see anything you want.

enlightenment looks for enlightenment. if enlightenment is a object either inner or outer then it can be percieved to be LOST when they eye ( attention ) is no longer focused on it.

kinda like the no mind crap around here. they attached themselves to this principle and their minds are now still so they percieve it as no mind.

a still mind is a dead mind.

ok this man has said enoufe.
