All the knowledge scrambled my brains

Once upon a time life was simple.
There were joys and sorrow.
I could take the joys but not the sorrow.

I wanted to know understand what this was all about.

Then came knowledge.

And my brains got really and truely fried and scrambled.

What was going on ?

Till I realised,that precisely, was the purpose of it.

Then the process of dropping all the knowledge began...
And now I am back to square one...
Not knowing anything anymore...
Life is simple again.

"THERE IS NO SELF.EVERYTHING IS THE SELF.THERE IS A FALSE SELF. THERE IS A REAL SELF.THERE ARE MANY SELVES.THERE IS ONLY ONE SELF.THERE IS NOTHING OTHER THAN THE SELF....

THIS IS REAL....THAT IS NOT REAL...THIS IS A CONCEPT...THIS IS NOT A CONCEPT... NON-REALITY.... REALITY...!!!
Even...NON-DUALITY...DUALITY.

"Oh what a web we weave...
When we first practice how to deceive...." "

NOW :

A tree is a tree,a bird a bird...
joy is joy,sorrow, sorrow...
you are you and I am I...
And its all okay ....
As it is.

Beautiful

This is so beautiful and so true. I've been following your posts avidly since you started writing here and this one even tops the others. It does so because it demonstrates how you truly evolve - not taking your advancement to the ego, not trying to be that image of an authoritarian teacher but rather on the contrary, joking about yourself (this is so rare for people advanced like you) and the beautiful way you react to criticism with no ego at all.

When you exit the knowledge realm, that past knowledge that you chased so strongly in the past suddenly seems as something so redundant, so ridiculous, so funny. You ask yourself - why the hell did I chase it so vigorously? what dis it give me at all except of false sense of control and amusement for the mind?

Benevolence

Thank you Annie.
And
Thank you Yogiraj.

"you are you and I am I...
And its all okay ....
As it is."

Annie :

There happens a suspension of the "I" and in that space arises spontaneously
"THERE IS NO SELF/EVERYTHING IS THE SELF...."
Then the "I" returns,feeling its gone through the exalting and euphoric experience of the same..

Then there is the settling down.
And the experience is seen for what it is,just that,an experience,not very different from having a cup of tea...!!!

Often the mind tries to know and understand what happened and that's when "the scrambling" ensues..

Just a quiet acceptance of the duality of life..both the sides of the same coin...the joys and the sorrows..

The benevolence of

the understanding,the praise..
and
the guy with a stick in hand ready to knock me senseless,and yank the rug out from under my feet...

Space enough for both to co-exist.

Life is simple again.

"And its all okay ....
As it is."

TRUTH,LOVE,PEACE

Letting go...

You're very welcome, Shond.
One can get so very attached to knowledge ,much like all else....letting it all go eventually, is grace.

TRUTH,LOVE,PEACE
