hurtling towards enlightenment – 03


RISKING EVERYTHING AND LOSING IT ALL

to gain freedom

Life is a dream. When you die, everything you hold dear fades into Emptiness. Everything that you think is important is a huge farce and everyone you meet is an actor following an elaborate, enticing script. Many layers create the scheme, and the actors depict roles within roles within roles… There are so many layers that most people feel quite successfully confused.

In the test run of life, you jump in, you act out, and you see if you can act your way out. If you can, then you don’t have to do it again, ever. You can come back if you want to – it’s your choice. Even hell is a dream.

This world appears dominated by rules.

Even Enlightened Beings play by the rules, because if you don’t play by the rules nobody takes you seriously. If nobody takes you seriously, you don’t get anywhere. So you are led to believe.

What happens – what really happens – if you decide to risk it all and stop playing by the ‘rules’?

What happens if you actually decide to believe the contents of this book? Belief requires action and decisions. You can change your mind at any moment, in any instant of time whatsoever. You are deciding right now. And now. And now.

If you decide to believe the improbable, it becomes probable. If you decide to believe the ‘impossible’, you suddenly find yourself watching the “impossible” unfold before your eyes.

When you decide that every single person you meet is an Enlightened Being, they function that way and help you in unimaginable ways. They may insist they’re ordinary, but this book explains why they insist they’re ordinary. So please smile and be nice to them, even if they just cut you off in traffic or took the last slice of chocolate pie.

When you become willing to risk losing “everything”, the entire world becomes yours. When you truly defy fear, then truly nothing can harm you.

Your families, friends and neighbors matter. They help you in many ways. They show you examples, good and bad. They perform the actions of Enlightened Beings. So do politicians, corporate executives, and tyrants. Some people cannot see this because they still believe in the rules.

The real revolution takes place when you set an example of mindfulness for others. People sense motivations on a very deep level. If you walk the walk, you will not have to talk the talk. People will notice, and they will understand.

When you leave the rules behind, there is no need to break them – they dissolve into Emptiness.

Then you experience freedom, and create your world of Enlightenment.
