The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Do not become enlightened

Do not try to become anything.
Do not make yourself into anything.
Do not be a meditator.
Do not become enlightened.
When you sit, let it be.
When you walk, let it be.
Grasp at nothing.
Resist nothing.

  1. To get to anywhere, there is a first step and there is a journey towards the goal. And the very first step towards realising the self involves starting to unlearn!
    The more we think we know, the more the journey retards.
    Knowledge and education and everything that makes us think we are equipped to realise the truth is actually redundant. The quicker you learn to unlearn , the faster you move towards your goal of realising the self.
