Nondual 101

Buddahood does not happen by being made to happen.
It is unsought and naturally indwelling, and so is
spontaneously present.
Rest nonconceptually in this effortless, naturally abiding state.


Let go of what has passed.
Let go of what may come.
Let go of what is happening now.
Don't try to figure anything out.
Don't try to make anything happen.
Relax, right now, and rest.


Desires are just waves in the mind. You know a wave when you see one. A desire is just a thing among many. I feel no urge to satisfy it, no action needs to be taken on it. Freedom from desire means this: the compulsion to satisfy is absent.

couldn't be shorter or sweeter. This Dhamma, this truth which cost even one with so much Baramee as the Lord Buddha 50 thousand lifetimes to assemble the strenght of character to let go of this thing we ckeep clinging to. This tendency to look for trouble, to seek something to do, to be active in the world. Ah being.. Becoming i should say.. We never ARE, we are only becoming - be-coming ... coming into being...
Frustrating this cocoon state
Frustration is suffering

It is so simple and easy to know that the key is to stop.
But it seems so hard when we stop, and fafter only a few moments the heart begins to twitch and writhe, looking for something to do, something to intertwine with and get entangled in.
Looking for trouble.
