The way of realization forces one to give up everything that was acquired by many years of labor, to reinforce your ambitions in a society, what you spend your life on. It is a conflict of entire HUMAN life against a barely perceptible meditative product. Question: how many of such careerists do you know? — the ones who are capable of giving up a professional career on the rise, when you are super, best of all, the best of the best, — for this barely perceptible meditative product. And this best, socially adapted person will have to be able to give up the conquered things, to free himself from himself.
The Master’s way — is one….one. Are you able to go not only through yourself alone, but to go through the world alone. When you are against all that is stagnant, everything stiff in the world, the whole world is ready — all of it — is ready to grind you into dust. Meditation is impossible without freeing yourself from the acquired belongings. Can a human give it up?
The one, who is capable of giving up the world, will gain the world.
The one, who is capable of giving up the “I”(ego), with gain oneself.
There is a problem — in our mentality. A reader, our degreed meditative specialist, will decide that he is the one who is — liberated. He even has a degree in his hand to prove that. But if you’re it, it’s very simple to solve: prove it meditatively. We have a problem — a big problem — in the West and even in the East they are giving out papers on meditation. But meditation is learned not in a college, meditation is learned from a hunter, and only a hunter can separate a hunter, — find him, notice a hunter amongst millions of people.
And this is not a student. Such a person is abnormality in a way. Special form of skills — ability for meditative concentration and following of individual unique training, personal DO.
This is why I like martial arts: unlike smart speakers, correct speakers, know-alls, everything is solved simply here. If only all our enlightened, certified and advanced ones were sent there — all of them, on a hard surface — without tatami and a wrestling mat. I am sure, confident, that in a mental airwave — there would be blessed silence. And in this silence you would have heard quiet voices of masters.
Maybe then and you will hear their conversation, what they’re talking about:
We have a problem —
1) lack of meditative education,
2) lack of meditative enlightenment,
3) lack of meditative upbringing,
4) because the whole culture and tradition are — non-meditative.
5) We are different on a psychogenetic level — psycho-gene-selection has happened.
6) And the most important: we have never ever had a meditative Master. We had psycho- technicians, but a meditative Master — never.
