The first and last step

by Robert Wolfe on June 6th, 2016

​Enlightenment is such an uncomplicated matter! What need be clearly realized is simply this: there is but one ever-present actuality, and there is not anything from which it can be apart.

Anything which we view as not that actuality is not true. All—each and everything—which we say exists is imbued with that singular actuality. Everything, in other words, shares in—or as—this one Truth.

So, it is said—and understood by the enlightened—that “all that is, is That”. In this understanding, there cannot then be conflict: there are no two (or more) things to be in opposition, competition or contention.

This has a couple of profound effects, from the start, for the inquisitive human mind: where and when can this ultimate reality be discovered to be present?

Every where. All that is to be sensed is That. The sensor too is That. “Nowhere is it not,” Vedic scriptures tell us.

When can I come to discover ultimate reality? Time is meaningless here. You are already marinating in ultimate reality. And it is already present in anything which you sense.

​In the simple recognition that everything conceivable is that One ever-present actuality or Truth, every other aspect of enlightenment will be revealed as evident. This is the first and last “step”.

Only one word to utter about this post: BRAVO!

What common sense, what a breath of fresh air, I knew that myself, and that's exactly why I've dismissed it.
Isn't that funny and sad at the same time?
