Jesus said, “And the truth shall set you free.”

As Buddhists, we interpret this as meaning:
the realisation of absolute reality of pure conscious awareness shall set you free.
When realised, you are free of ‘you’!

Teachers, traditions and cultures interpret truth in their own way. To be accurate, it is our own genuine experience that is the reality, rather than a reliance upon hearsay. Hearsay is like ‘whispering in a line’ which may become distorted, both unintentionally … and intentionally.

As a Buddhist, the ‘kingdom of heaven’ is the absolute reality of pure conscious awareness.
‘God’ is the absolute reality of pure conscious awareness.
The ‘Father’ is the absolute reality of pure conscious awareness.
Our true nature is the absolute reality of pure conscious awareness.

Truth is not a belief: it may be demonstrated or pointed out to any sentient being who has ears to hear.

Jesus said, “No one goes to the Father but by me.” As a Buddhist, this is read as, “No one attains enlightenment but by a teacher.”

To be more accurate; “No one realises absolute reality but by recognising the mistaken self-identity of the me’ “. This recognition is the unity of the two truths of relative and absolute reality. By virtue of one, the other is known.

When this is understood, experienced and realised, we become self-reliant and free. We use the pattern of our karmic behaviour to realise our true nature. Our karmic reactions are recognised within emptiness.

The path to enlightenment comprises steps of realisation.
The path to endarkenment comprises distractions and perversions.

    Hi Tony, keep up the good work on this blog! Its very inspiring and uplifting to read your daily posts! To add some tiges to the rhizome… 🙂

    Jesus also said:
    “The kingdom of God is within you .. (Luke 17:20-21)

    or through Dzogchen ears..:
    “so stay exactly here”, you lucky ones..!” Lonchenpa to his students

    was Jesus a Dzogchen master .. ?

    or a mirror-like example of crazy wisdom ~ Chögyam Trungpa
    “In the scriptures, a crazy-wisdom person is described as “He who subdues whatever needs to be subdued and destroys whatever needs to be destroyed.” Whatever your neurosis demands, when you relate with a crazy-wisdom person, you get hit with that. Crazy wisdom presents you with a mirror reflection. A mirror will not compromise with you. If you don’t like what you see, there’s no point in blaming the mirror…”
