      Ruthless Truth
      One of the things the seeker does not want to hear
      especially when it has invested a lot of time, money and intensity
      into the search: hours of meditation, buying and reading
      spiritual books, going for satsangs and retreats etc.,
      that the search can be dropped right here and right now,
      as there is no golden pot at the end of the rainbow.
      There will be no enlightenment in the future.

      Whatever Is is only ever Now.

      Always perceived at this moment,

      To be seen only Now

      Only ever Now

      Did you notice its always Now?

      The ruthless truth is that the person you believe yourself to be will never get it.

      The pristine awareness that you are already
      does not need any improvement,
      does not need any process to be able to comprehend itself.

      Enlightenment, freedom is not for the person
      its freedom from the person.


      What you are looking for is
      what you are looking from.

      Already the case.

      You are That

      (But then who knows... :
      maybe even though the seeker does not want to hear this,
      it might be that awareness, trying to recognize Itself through you,
      drops this information in your lap, so you,
      after investigating this belief of being a person and seeing the fallacy of it
      might finally relax, sit back and enjoy the show ;-) )

      Dhanya writes:

      In an effort to demystify this type of event
      I offer here the Sanskrit term for this type
      of experience, whether one calls it transcendental,
      blissful, fool's gold, or whatever the technical
      term for it is 'ati sukshma vritti.'

      Ati (very) sukshma (subtle) vritti (thought form)

      So the reflection of the 'light of consciousness'
      (again if one wants to use those term) in a mind
      which is very calm and peaceful is called an
      ati sukshma vritti. It can be mistaken for
      the recognition of the truth, but it isn't the
      recognition of truth because for one thing
      it goes away, and for another it is not a direct
      cognition of one's true nature. In other words,
      the sense that my identity is as the body mind individual
      is still firmly in place.

      demystifying the mystical

      the mystics
      use similes
      to express
      the divine love.

      but me - for me
      love of god
      every experience
      to the mystic heights!

      my lover's body
      is the perfect
      divine temple.
      no doubt.
      her skin -
      a prayer
      most sublime.

      and a kiss - oh, the kiss!
      kissing your
      my beloved one
      a most rewarding
      rapture of unity!

      the secret book of books
      lies hidden
      between her thighs.

      what is.
      always and forever.

      what the devout
      divine love
      is but a simile
      for this
      god given
