Are there many teachings, or only one?
There are many, many teachings, with long mystical names, but in essence it is all about one, and that is pure consciousness. It is pure consciousness that has many expressions.
This is exactly the same with sentient beings. We are all pure consciousness, but express in unique ways.
If we think it’s complicated, we will go around in circles, chasing one teaching after another.
If we realise the simplicity of pure consciousness, we will remain in the centre, watching the many-go-round.
There are no new teachings. There are no extra-special teachings.
Ultimately, everything is known due to pure consciousness. If we insist on collecting the many, we will destroy experience and realisation.
Religion … spirituality … the Dharma … can only be destroyed from within.
There are many paths to oneness; some paths are straight and some, bendy!
