Practice, practice and more practice
27 Oct 2011 Shanti Gowans
The doors of perception have been opened by realised beings and the fortune of enjoying its wealth is within the reach of ordinary disciples. To make this profound path meaningful and to attain complete liberation, it is of vital importance to practice.
Earlier stepping stones, thought earnestly undertaken and immensely beneficial are based on theoretical understanding. Books, textural expositions and half baked understanding brought about
by teachers who pridefully believe they understand the awakened state and non-dual awareness while still limited by inadequate learning, training and experience, must give way to honesty and humility, together with combining a study of the original scriptures with unexcelled oral instruction and practical experience that gives a new meaning to it. When confusion is purified, the wisdom that is our basic wakefulness becomes apparent.
As we mature our being through practice, we ripen empowerments, reading, transmissions and liberate instructions.
The purpose of practice is just to be yourself.
