I used to watch Mooji and Echkart Tolle later on, but now I can't watch youtube videos currently.

Here is a link to The Open Secret (to read because watching is not possible).
www.theopensecret.com...


The open secret communication can only point to the simple wonder of being and attempt to illuminate the futility of seeking for it. It does not accept or reject the teachings of spiritual path or process but it will expose, without compromise, the singular and fundamental misconception that drives the belief that there is something called a seeker that is able to find something else called enlightenment.

Life is not a task. There is absolutely nothing to attain except the realisation that there is absolutely nothing to attain.

What is sought remains hidden from the seeker by already being everything.



The "me" searches for peace and fulfilment; the "me" searches for self-improvement, purity, presence or detachment. The "me" seeks clarity or any formula which will give the "me" what it thinks it wants or needs. But the "me" not getting what it wants is not the dilemma. The dilemma is the apparent "me".

I am not seeking peace, fulfilment, improvement, purity, presence or detachment.

I am the body...everything arises and flows in me...I am life.

Nothing more is required.

No open secrets...no endless YouTube swamis.


Who knows...perhaps if you watch enough of them...you will get the message.

Although I would have thought that one would have sufficed.


Even old Krishnamurti said 'no one got it'.

Not even you!


Edit to add...

That was just a quip...there is no need for elaboration on your part.

And we both know what he means really.

Although...let me ask if I may.

What drives the desire to watch all those videos?

What is lacking in you that you need this...whatever?

You already have all the information.

Nothing is lacking.
Why do you assume there is something lacking?

Would you care to elaborate? What information are you speaking of?

What drives the desire to ask the question?

Well you didn’t answer my questions...just deflected them.
But I will answer yours in a straightforward manner...
I don’t have to hide behind some pedantic semantic shell game.

I assume there is something lacking as you spend your time watching YouTube gurus.
And of course reading similar literature...
The information I speak of, is the information contained in said YouTube videos and literature of a similar ilk.
I am not judging the information...I merely said ‘you have it’.

To ask why you watch these videos is an honest question. Let me put it in a context...that may lead to better understanding.
I have a friend who is/was a true Krishnamurti-Tony de Mello enthusiast.
So much so that he has over the years gained all available knowledge about them.
One day on a rare visit I noticed that he had ‘paused’ a Tony de Mello video and I asked him the same question. He had watched this video countless times and yet the message was simple.
Unlike you he didn’t deflect the question with ‘why are you asking’ but gave an honest answer.

Now another question that arises is why you feel the need to deflect?
And lastly...these two replies regarding Krishnamurti.

“No one!!!”

Ego.

“Is it really known what he really means?”

Yes it is...that is regarding what he meant by saying ‘no one got it’.
And you can play that little game of ‘there is nothing to ‘get’ and ‘no one’ to get it.
But that’s another story.

So anyway I was wondering...
Why do you keep watching those YouTube videos?

As I answered before - there is nothing lacking.

I am sharing the videos (same answer as before).

What answer would you consider a 'honest' answer? It seems you are not satisfied with the answers given.

Honestly no completely honest answer comes up when the question 'why are the videos watched?' - I do not 'keep' watching them - maybe it is just pleasurable - a bit like enjoying watching sport or soap operas or any movie really.

There is no one to get it only the getting reduces and reduces and finally dissolves. Nothing else!

Very beautiful words about freedom of being free.

I am sure there is a place where to be free.

Well I consider that an honest answer.
And my friend couldn't really answer either.

And you couldn't resist another video.
