Waking up is relatively straight forward. First there is usually an interest in wanting to know the truth of reality. Then thanks to media such as on the Unisphere…my term for the Internet, one can read of folk who have seen through to their truth nature and usually they point to it via blog posts, social media, or vlogs. For those finders in the market place selling their e-books or old fashioned paper variety of book can be purchased on-line or in store.
Satsangs or rather meetings in person with someone who has seen their true nature are useful but unnecessary.
What is being read here and now is done so by pure cognizant awareness, this same ground of being witnesses the mind and body and world. The ego is a self reflective feedback loop believing it as mind or an ‘I’ unchanging is real. It is not ultimately real, though conventionally it is. It is a tool, merely that. It can be a useful tool or a down right annoying little fecker to itself and other egos.
Awareness is unchanging and the Real, yet it appears out of ItSelf to be a created mind-body and world. And quite convincingly it creates ‘personal’ suffering and an environment that is uncomfortable; this trickery is all used to bring back the weary to ItSelf.
Seen through though there is only ItSelf and no other. The holodeck of ‘outside’ is just that a phantasm, a circus, a black comedy or a zombie apocalypse even a Pureland… what ever the mind perceives it as such it is.
Lift the carpet though and there is just That, you are the clear mirror and that is joyful.
