  Things have never declared themselves empty, nor have they declared
themselves form; and they have not declared themselves right, wrong,
defiled or pure. Nor is there a mind that binds and fetters people.
It is just because... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: THE PATH IS WIDE OPEN..
vertical line Posted on Dec.29.2013 @ 07:25PM EDT by leoj99
All the teachings says that the Path is Narrow and almost no one could pass it.. if you pass it you are enlightened...LOL..

On the contrary.. the Path is wide open.. so wide that everyone is one tha Path...LOL.. the only thing is only very few knows they are on the Path... almost every think... this is it? this must not be it... so they look for something else..thinking and always have thoughts of the path.. somewhere behind the rainbow for the Path.... then they say they have found it only to find out later that it is not true... they even wait until they die so they can be in the Path...LOL

vertical line But most people don't want to be pushed.. they just like to continue looking for the path even though they are already on the path...LOL

And they are talking continuously about the path telling people where to find the path... LOL... only if they can stop talking... stop thinking...LOL

vertical line If you get enlightened your ego is dropped... because you realize that everyone or everything is in the same path... you are in no way special from the others...LOL..
Have you heard of the stories of Zen Masters of old that when they got great enlightenment they laugh at themselves and go hide in the mountains... I guess they don't want to talk and avoid some others asking them questions...LOL...

vertical line The 'masters' laugh at us like croaking frogs. For their great trick which we believe until we don't.
