THERE IS NO ONE TO BECOME ENLIGHTENED

“There is no such thing as an enlightened person. There never has been. No person has ever become enlightened. Because the whole idea of a person becoming enlightened is a total contradiction, it’s a total ignorance.

Awakening is the realization that there is no one. When the seeker drops away, that which is sought becomes apparent. But it becomes apparent to no one… it just is apparent.

That which we seek is always present, is totally constant. That which we long for is already this.”

-Tony Parsons

MICHAEL: You didn’t create the “me” and you can’t make it go away… the activity of trying to stop your thoughts or make the “me” go away is simply more “me” activity. Trying to get rid of an illusion just reinforces it. It would be like trying to get rid of the Boogey man in the closet.

The seeker is a rejection of what is… what it longs for is its own absence. New MJ Awakening Blog

THE SEEKER IS A REJECTION OF WHAT IS…
WHAT IT LONGS FOR IS ITS OWN ABSENCE

“Nothing that the seeker does brings them nearer to that which is already free. Everything the seeker does is a sort of an effective way of avoiding freedom. The seeker is desperately afraid of its own absence, and it’s the one thing it longs for.”

-Tony Parsons

MICHAEL: There’s just what’s happening and it doesn’t have an owner. It’s the illusory “me’s” attempt to control the uncontrollable that is its suffering. Indeed, “me” and “control” are synonyms, as one never shows up without the other.
