Figure it Out For Yourself

The  Buddha  was just some guy who got serious and figured it out for himself, so maybe that is his real teaching; that you can figure it for yourself.

Jed McKenna

Much of what is written from the perspective of religion and spirituality has given me little or no solace.  It most often strikes me as fantasies that have been elaborately constructed and forcefully imposed in order to stave off the possibility of death and nothingness: the more apparent reality for me. They have no power compared  with the groundless vacuum that they seek to mask, and my reflective mind will have nothing of the consolation they may provide.

it is through this realization that there is an awakening  to truth.

  1. Jed figured it all out, and I figured out Jed. I met him in Cambodia, which killed all notions of enlightenment. Reality is a good teacher, and he lies just like many others did before him.

    • I can relate to what you say and what Jed writes. I also discovered another writer who I have read briefly. Kyle Hoobin.
