You Will Never Get Enlightened
“You will never get enlightened…
…because you already are the light!
“There was never a time that you’ve not been the light. You, awareness, can’t be switched on or off. You’ve been self-shining since – forever. You are timeless and beyond all experience. You are the light – the awareness – that lights up the jiva reading these lines and all the worlds. You are always free from what you light up. You shine the shine.” ~ Non doodle
(“Beyond experience” means beyond the three gunas. We call this “triguna-atita.” Understanding one’s freedom from the gunas = moksa.) (''All the worlds = all the apparent states (i.e dream, sleep, waking) and other experiences within mithya)
For years I have happily and diligently responded to communications on the topic of Self realization. Since the publication of my book, “How to Attain Enlightenment”— currently in its third printing —and the success of this website, the volume of emails has increased considerably. Unfortunately, owing to a busy schedule of teaching and writing, I am no longer able to answer all the emails I receive in a timely fashion. However, my wife, who is also a teacher, and several well-qualified teachers we have endorsed are available to answer emails on my behalf. I encourage you to send them your questions.
