who doesn’t want to practise
Some of us can’t practise, won’t practise, or don’t see the point of practising, but we still want to know. Well, we can! All that is needed is for ultimate reality to be pointed out, and then it is our job to remember and sustain it. It’s a back door to practising. 🙂 We are practising remembering and seeing. If we find this too difficult or our mind is still confused, we then use formal practices. I do both.
As individuals, formal practice prepares us with the right motivation and understanding for the moment of recognition of our true nature. Does it work? I’m not sure. However, when the right moment arrives, and the pointing out instruction is given, then that moment can be quite powerful.
Between you and me, my response was, “Is that all?”!
This approach may not work for everyone as the mind still needs convincing, so study and practice are needed.
Usually, the pointing out instruction is given within a special atmosphere so that we take it in…we ‘get it’! This is why it is regarded as secret. The short text used is often, “The Lamp That Dispels Darkness” by Mipham Rinpoche.
It is not understood through intelligence but by direct experience. Throughout this blog, there are expressions of this, without formality. It is merely awareness looking at itself and finding nothing but awareness which is recognised and indescribable.
“Is that all?”
“That is all.”
