Blue Monring by Linaji

“There is a lot of confusion over this imaginary goal, this spiritual concept referred to as enlightenment.  So let’s clear it up, once and for all.  It has nothing to do with some future, hoped-for experience.  To imagine that it does is just the play of spiritual desire and self-centered escapism, of mental commentary, memory and fantasy, based on what has been read or heard.

To be enlightened is simply to be absolutely, unconditionally intimate with this moment.”

–Scott Morrison–
