Finding The Buddha In The Mud
Ordinary words convey conventional meanings, but those very same words can also have an extraordinary meaning. This extraordinary meaning cuts through the neurolinguistics we have adopted (neurolinguistics is the study of the neural mechanisms in the human brain that control the comprehension and reactions which govern our existence). Our understanding of extraordinary meanings to ordinary words will open the door to enlightenment.
We are neither what we think nor what we have been led to believe. Absolute reality is simple – extremely simple – and that is where the importance of practical meditation lies. Absolute reality is the seeing itself: we are free in the moment of seeing.
We have become so clever at being distracted by our creations that our cleverness obscures seeing. The purpose of meditation is seeing. Being aware. Being conscious.
When we use words merely as a nattering of parrots, ignorance will be our sentence.
Pure consciousness is beyond the charm of neurolinguistics.
