Spiritual Journey

The hardest part of the journey is the beginning as it is a journey..

..the end is a shock as you realise it was not.

The journey of a thousand miles...
...ends with a single step.

Yesterday, I somehow got inspired to write about Buddha's enlightenment paradox; that he had already possessed what he was seeking all along :p

Either you beheaded me, or I simply sensed your post before I read it.

You are Me, anyway :p

This quote, as with most of the last week, are from my own book written last year. (Book in the loosest sense of the word, I'm no writer.)

Rizal it's true what you say about the Buddha. It may even be that the Buddha Mind is the Buddha (a concept not a person) and the Buddha (person) we talk of was just one of many people to realize this Buddha Mind. That it is 'the way things are' and once concepts are dropped we see "Oh, it was there all along and I was blinded by looking".

Doug linked to a very nice bit of work called the open secret which is a well written version of what I sloppily said in my "book" some time ago and many of us seem to be drawing ever closer to stating this very very simple version of truth, that it is just " " and the more you explain the more you retreat from it.

Thus shorter and simpler posts. Note though that every post made here up until mid June 2010 was written on or before Nov 2009. So I'm posting nothing new here until mid June 2010.

Whoa,

in the sense of this separateness, you are months ahead of me. Whehehehehe...

I wonder if you published your book like Shinzen too :)
