Spirituality How spiritually "free" are you, really? Let's discuss how LIBERATING your ideas might be. Especially on subjects such as freedom from mental suffering, about serving mandkind, compassion, awareness, spiritual wisdom, enlightenment...
Do you want to understand? The whole world is one of your eyes, the body produced by your parents is a cataract. All ordinary people ignore the indestructible, marvelously clear, unfailingly mirroring eye, and cling fast to the dust cataract produced by the relationship of their father and mother. Therefore they take illusions for realities, and grasp at reflections as the physical forms themselves.

The real seeker of truth never seeks truth. On the contrary, he tries to clean himself of all that is untrue, inauthentic, insincere - and when his heart is ready, purified, the guest comes. You cannot find the guest, you cannot go after him. He comes to you; you just have to be prepared. You have to be in a right attitude.
TRUTH happens in a state of not knowing, truth happens in innocence. Truth happens where there are no clouds of thoughts moving in your consciousness, when sky is absolutely clear, when there is no abstraction, when you have no idea and God is or God is not. When you don't believe in no-God, when you are simply in a state of not knowing. You don't claim any knowledge, that non-claiming consciousness begins to open up. All knowledge burdens and closes you.
LOVE deeply, love without jealousy, love blissfully and help each other to be more meditative. Because what else can we do and what can we share? Man is born naked without anything. Love should be the beginning of sharing something. Your love becomes a spiritual phenomenon.
There are no conditions to fulfil. There
is nothing to be done, nothing to be given up.
Just look and remember, whatever you
perceive is not you, nor yours. It is there
in the field of consciousness, but you are
not the field and its contents, nor even
the knower of the field. It is your idea
that you have to do things that entangles you
in the results of your efforts - the motive,
the desire, the failure to achieve, the sense
of frustration - all this holds you back.
Simply look at whatever happens and know
that you are beyond it.
Words mean nothing when they are taken out of context. As for me, our bodies are as magnificent creations as our souls and everything in the Universe. Everybody and everything serves its purpose - thus is great and important. I prefer staying away from those people and teachings that are overly "spiritual". Master Dang was a pragmatic person, caring but decisive leader worthy of respect. I am grateful for learning from him.
...the physical body into Light" was and still is the purpose of the L16-20 technique of "traveling into space (emptiness v.p.).
This practice, very pragmatically, confirms the meaning of the jewel of Oriental Philosophy, relation Emptiness-Form and vice versa.
Is it over spiritual? Perhaps it is if you do not understand correctly. No teaching could possibly explain this unless practiced and verified in reality.
Please, tell me out of what context I am pulling out Master's words.
