SECRETS? WHAT SECRETS?

Secrets? What Secrets?

Secret: separate, set apart, not meant to be known or seen by others. The question is, why?

There is only one secret worth knowing and that is our true nature, which is pure conscious awareness. It is covered up by our own deceptive idea of ‘self’ which, in setting us apart from pure conscious awareness, created a duality. That’s the secret!

If spiritual traditions imply that they have secret teachings, this is a ruse, a step backwards, a deception. It is making something more complicated and mysterious than it needs to be … unless the purpose is to attract numbers of people, and people mean money!

If conspiracy theorists imply that they have secret teachings, this is a ruse, a step backwards, a deception. It is making something more complicated and mysterious than it needs to be. Unless the purpose is to attract numbers of people, and people mean money!

Of course, there are teachings on ultimate truth, but they need not be inconceivable mysteries.
Of course there are conspiracies on this planet, but they need not be inconceivable mysteries.
Over-elaboration can cause confusion, either deliberately or unintentionally. If a thing is not fully explained, this is the perpetuation of ignorance and therefore, suffering.

I’ve lost count of the number of teachings with fancy names that I’ve attended, along with empowerments elaborate in construction and decoration, with ritual objects being waved in the air: they just left me staring!
I’ve lost count of the conspiracy predictions with fancy names that I’ve heard, with imaginary fantasies being waved in the air: they also just left me staring!
Fancy: a contraction of ‘fantasy’.

Is the real truth being held back, covered up by those who pretend to hold deeper truths? To keep us constantly separated from those who imply that they ‘know’? If you watch the Asch Experiment (https://www.simplypsychology.org/asch-conformity.html) you will see how easily we accept directions from a white coat, a uniform or a costume.
Is it all a charade, an absurd pretence intended to create a pleasant or respectable appearance?
Imitative: copying or following a model.

There is only one secret worth knowing and that is our true nature, pure conscious awareness. It is covered up by a deceptive idea of self which, in setting us apart from pure conscious awareness, created a duality. There is no need to be stuck in a church, temple or gompa to realise this. There is no need to hang on to the teacher’s every word as if we were four years old – at some time we have to stand on our own … death bed … alone!

You are the secret!!!

Unfortunately, without these glittering baubles, those child’s toys, we wouldn’t know where to begin, so they do have a purpose in that we play act until we find our true role.
Role: refers originally to the roll of paper on which the actor’s part was written.

But, as the Buddha said, “Not too tight and not too loose.”
The final truth is still our true nature.
You are the secret.
All Buddhas know this!
It’s what all aliens want 😀 😀 😀

We are not imprisoned by appearances, but by attachment.
