Ordinary Enlightenment For Ordinary People
Ordinary enlightenment for ordinary people requires
and ordinary dissatisfaction
to see the truth that we are the truth we seek.
If, on the other hand, we want super-duper extraordinary enlightenment which is wonderful and impressive – rather like an ice cream sundae with five scoops, five toppings and whipped cream – this may give rise to indigestion.
Could it be that we feel this super-duper, wonderfully impressive, extraordinary enlightenment is not really for us, thus giving us a subtle excuse not to bother seeing and cutting through our mental obscurations directly, as we prefer the ice cream choices provided for us?
On the other hand, we can decide that we don’t need an ice cream at all; we simply walk away and live an ordinary life which, nowadays, would be extraordinary.
