but then how is any one else to know, if know one talks of the "sacred enlightenment" how are we to learn. I know we all must do this our selves but
Ive learnt a lot from others who are further to enlightenment than me.
Why do Zen masters have students if no one is to talk of this?
I know absolute enlightenment can NOT be put into words its just a knowing, but to not actually talk about its journey seems just not helpful to
Maybe he who does not talk just does not know!
Enlightenment is not some esoteric stream of "Knowledge" beaming into ones head, it is more like a focused awareness. There is only now. You are
awake, but also truley aware. Talking only disturbs this awareness.
You can learn just by watching a competent teacher. Easier said than done, I know. So just breathe, stop thinking, and for once just watch, observe
life around you. What does it tell you?
....it is a search for a mindstate. Zen for example tries to bring it about through sudden or abrupt logic changes, or even randomly stiking students(
hoping on a random enlightenment). But in reality, you just need to wake up. It is far easier to find this mindstate by actually seeing someone in
this state...the subject is so big, humans have made religions about it and still failed.
