The below post is actually a comment left on my about page from Jason. It’s a great feeling to know a few words have reached someone across the world in a way that encourages them to share their experience.
Aloha from Hawaii,
I had a question about training shoulders. This led me too bodybuilding.com. It led me to the forum. Which led me to the responses concerning shoulders and ultimately to Boy under the bridge. I read a few of your passages. It reminded me of my own journey a few years back. The ability for you to percieve the world, its situations and circumstances in the way that you do is a blossoming lotus from the divine. It will only continue to blossom and open itself to its full grandeur. True self has begun to transcend the mind. The mind with its ego and limited perceptions is waning in the light of the true self. In one of your writings you wrote that you are not enlightened. I am here to tell you that you are. We dont need to “achieve” enlightenment. There is nothing you have to “do” to be enlightened. You are enlightened now and always have been.
Enviornment, past conditioning, society, etc have covered and cloaked it from you. We are lead to believe we are something that we are not. I can tell however that layer by layer it is being peeled away from that construct of the mind.your clarity of true seeing is opening up and allowing intellectual paradigm shifts within your mind which in turn touches pure consciousness. When this happens we feel the rightness in all things, even if it is first percieved of as being a bad situation. It Is just that, a situation neither good nor bad. It merely is. Continue on brother. We are instruments of the divine, expressing our lives step by step from within the divine. As divinity itself. What is the distance we must travel for enlightenment or to become enlightened?
There is no recordable or measurable distance to it. It is here and now behind the veil of mind illusion. It is not far away, it is merely the distance of a thought that seperates unenlightened and enlightenment. We are that already, we just need to allow ourselves the freedom to see it. We are many around the globe, no one is ever alone, pure consciousness binds us all. These words arent from my identity. It flows like water on the page. Consciousness using the body instrument to write, pure consciousness recognizing pure consciousness. Witnessing itself in another body instrument halfway around the world. As Boy under the bridge
Take care- Namaste
Now i’m gonna blast away at dem shoulders!!
