I only meditated for four months, fifteen minutes in the morning and fifteen minutes in the evening, before the absolute was revealed. What is is not something that can be attained, since it already is (and it not). I’ve heard of these neo-isms, and I wonder why folks think that the absolute was somehow better or different in the past. It’s timeless.

I would say that while suffering can be seen as “resistance” to what is (clinging and aversion), it’s more accurately the illusion of separation, and can also be seen as non-identification with the thing that is grasped at or rejected. When any particular apparent thing (e.g. pain or pleasure) is known to be included in the one without a second, then there is no suffering.

There is no intention to help anyone “make a breakthrough” with what I write. I’m just sharing.
