Paraphrasing or Parroting Phrasing πŸ™‚

Paraphrase: express the meaning of something written or spoken using different words, especially to achieve greater clarity.

Parroting: mechanical repetition of words or phrases.

It doesn’t matter what spiritual practice we do, if it doesn’t resolve the true nature of mind, which is the pure state of awareness, then we are facing in the wrong direction. As Shabkar said, β€œIt would be like standing in front of a target and shooting the arrow away in the opposite direction.”

The whole point of any spiritual practice is to realise inexhaustible essence. It’s not about being a clever parrot, pretty though they are.

The essence of all teachings is awareness that is uncontaminated, for without that, nothing would be known. It is we who, through investigation, have to realise the meaning of spiritual teachings in order to achieve greater clarity…and then, we know!

    Once you learn something…nobody can ever take it away from you !
    Now I can clearly see the relative and absolute truth as to why the 1% are dumbing down humanity on purpose , and stopping the flow of information being freely shared and exposed !
    If you do not know who and what you are and where you came from…you will end up someones slave and or a energy vampires energy source !
