Self: Faking enlightenment



I can quote many masters,
I can fake spontaneity,
I can pretend to possess insight,
but while there is identification
with an I,
the great perfection of the mind
will remain hidden within confusion.

Garuda: Rigpa


Given spontaneous presence,
timelessly ensured and free
of hope and fear,
if you strive to achieve again and again,
you will see that there is nothing to achieve.

Nothing to achieve:
this is the fruition of
omnipresent awareness.

Longchenpa: Ati


Nowadays, those "elephants" who pride themselves on
being ati practitioners, allege that thought patterns,
stirring and proliferating, are awakened mind.

All of these fools are submerged in darkness,
far from the meaning of natural great perfection.

They do not understand even dynamic energy
or what arises from that energy,
to say nothing of the essence of awakened mind.

Lada: Certainty


Thoughts are like clouds,
invoked by the rocks of belief.

Drop clinging to opinions,
and the sky becomes blue.

The fresh wind of certainty,
clears the clouds of doubt.
