For those agnostics and atheists out there, who will come to Enlightenment through no other way than through knowledge, here's something for you to snack on and chew:

If you have abundant impatience and dont want to watch the whole 19 minute video, then just skip to 13:20 although doing so, may lead to taking the meat out of context!!!

Excellent Video.


It is true. We do not take the time to be aware of our own awareness of our senses. S&F

Interesting. So he's really talking about presence or presence of mind. You might be interested in the work of Dr Stephen L Hairfield. He discusses in depth on how to cultivate presence.

Mindfulnes,

The true teaching of the Buddha.

Simple as the following three ways of being, eventually will lead, if not in this lifetime then another to to the goal.

1 Relax (the body and mind, let go)

2 Now (bring your awareness back to the now, when wandering in thoughts about should have, could have, I will or fantasing about the future, let go dont judge just bring your mind gently back to NOW, as this is all we have the rest is just an illusion/fantasy or reliving the past or further fantasies)

3 Love (feel it, let it grow, not directed at anything but just all let it grow Love all unconditionally, allows forgiveness evenyually of all to a very important part of this.)

Simple as, Nothing new, freedom, enlightenment and a happy life now and in the future awaits.

Kind Regards

Elf
