Sample text

So really liberation is just a marriage. It isn't just a marriage it's the marriage. Fire and ice extinguish each other and the result is nothing awakening into everything. What happens to someone who's caught in the fire, if the ice bit is like 58 the ivory tower or the glass box? They tend to stay in a highly emotional state (which isn't necessarily all over the place). There's a sense of great love but not great clarity. And they tend to communicate in that way. The trouble with the halfway house situation is that to a certain extent there's still subtly someone there, and what can happen is that very often people get to the halfway house and think that enlightenment has happened and then start communicating it.

To see that they aren't can already lift them out of that. That's compassion. And anyway, helping somebody who's suffering doesn't have anything to do with awakening. All you're doing is helping someone who's suffering. It's like, you could go to therapy and forgive your mother and resolve your problems with your sexuality - all you end up with is a person who's forgiven their mother and resolved their problems with their sexuality. It's got nothing to do with awakening at all. It's like a lot of teachings which talk about the way you should be - you should be honest or serious or meditate or whatever it is.

But it's also magnificent. Maybe I just haven't got the right personality. 34 It has nothing to do with you at all! But there must be some people where the penny drops and others where it doesn't! You've already indicated that there are several people here where the penny has dropped - isn't there something in the character, the personality? No, this has got nothing to do with the character at all. It has nothing to do with the person - it doesn't happen to the person. You see, it doesn't happen to Bill or Mary - it doesn't happen at all - it is what is.
