Everyone is addicted to a self, a ‘me’ and ‘mine’.
This is the only reason we are not enlightened;
the ideas about a self get in the way.
Until we truly realise this,
we will continue to believe in something
other than our actual reality of pure consciousness,
thus merely adding to a collection of ideas about our self.
Enlightenment is like the great “take away”
when we finally realise that there is nothing to “take away”.
Until then, we will pay for something that doesn’t exist.
Spiritual teachings aren’t meant to be a poetic charm:
they are meant to cut through ego’s games
to release us from addictions.
Expression then becomes limitless.
