Many people think there was only one "Buddha". They think that it is impossible that right now there are thousands of Humans that express the Buddha
Nature/Christ Consciousness (whatever you call it) that we ALL are. There is no Buddha as a person. Buddha is what we are.
What is enlightenment?
Enlightenment is the realization that You ARE the Reality that You Previously Thought You Existed IN. So you are at the same time NOTHING because you
are nothing SPECIAL. NO OBJECT-> Transcendence.
This can not be understood by the mind. But the mind can open up for the possibility that this is true. And that there is a reason to search for that
truth. Because in the end you are never searching for things. You are never searching for a new car, a new partnership, money etc.. You are always
searching for the feeling of allowing peace and happiness that you are. Do you really think the car made you happy? No, it was the vanishing of the
thought "I need a car" that made you happy.
And right now you are clouding the fact that you can have that unconditional freedom all the time.
Right now our capitalistic society needs you to search for something else than THIS because you are really effective when you are suffering. Because
then you are trying to get this freedom by buying stuff , by working 12 hours a day, by being the perfect slave...
Here is a list of a very few of the best teachers and enlightened "Buddhas" earth has right now (also in terms of good youtube VIdeos. If you want to
find truth: watch a few of them on youtube and chose who is worth listening to for you.
- heartlevel: for people with a strong sense of craving/longing/yearning for freedom. He works more with the heart than the mind
Tony Parsons (England)
-hardcore advaita: always speaks from the perspective of Nonduality (no person involved). More mind oriented. And for people who find it hard to let
go of thoughts and identification.
Papji (already died, India)
-The master of masters. He is the reason that many western teachers even exist. Wise and heartful. More for balanced people who are just feeling a
deep search but are not top heavy or overly emotional.
U.G Krishnamurti (already died, India)
-the cynical Nihilist. For the vain "control-fetish-minds" with a taste of "romantic spiritualism". That make something "extra ordinary" of
spirtuality. The ones that think they are "better" than people who are not spiritual.
Jeff Foster (UK)
-the new Generation. Really fresh and young. For people who need a modern approach.
(ok there are better videos on the topic. You will find them but this is the one that made me LAUGH so much that i really lied on the floor. Like
really ROFL.. www.youtube.com...
Rupert Spira (UK)
-the intellectual and clear mind. For the people who more want to philosophize about awakening.
Karl Renz (Germany)
-the genius . His english in awful and in german its much fun but he is good in destroying your sense of "having to search". He is a genius in loosen
Ramesh Balsekar (india)
-the experienced one. A direct disciple of NISARGADATTA.
Nisargadatta (India, already died)
-his books "IAM" are the best. They helped a lot of people.
-> His message: STay in the "IAM"
