“Wisdom you don’t get in colleges, schools, universities, nowhere. Where do you get it, the wisdom? You get it through your spirit, which gives you a complete idea as to what is right and what is wrong.”

What we essentially are is prior to all conditioning. The Jesus, The Buddha or Sri Ramana Maharshi did not have any more access to it than anyone else. So whatever it is that all these people & all these books are talking about - if there is any truth at all to their words, it must be here always, at any time wherever you are, during any circumstance. There is no figuring out of any of this through the mind, since what we are searching for is looking at the mind while it is busy searching and trying to figure it all out. We can't figure out the cause to a problem from the root problem. See? If there is anything at all to be free from, we must first really see if we were a part of the problem in the first place and the funny insight dawns upon us - I am not any of this, I am not these ideas, these beliefs, these thoughts and images - I am standing "behind" myself so to speak - looking at myself going nuts, the idea of myself were the nuts from the beginning trying to indulge in non-existent nuts. What we are asks no question, it is the question, it is the answer, it totally collapses their distinction from one another. You're it, you're the one, you are what is looking, you are what is searching and the seeker is the answer, the seeker is the problem, the seeker is just another cluster of belief in ideas - trying to understand what essentially is and are - from the narrow map of coming and going-ideas. It is so absurd, we are the answer to the big question, there is no big question - the question is a spontaneous arising object of thought relating to past thoughts, imagining future thoughts from a single Now. How long does it take for us to be aware? Seriously - Do we need to train awareness in order to be aware? Do we need to study quantum physics, psychology, a holy scripture, the spiritual teacher or a sacred language in order to arrive at the prior-sense of "I am-ness"? We are the one, the one who allows the drama of questions to appear on our screen and yet dissolves them at the same time in perfect silence. Either we see this or we don't, the happiness we want out of the world, the universe and life is YOU, you are it, your inherent nature is that happiness

Do the work! Don't just accept or follow blindly. Do the work. The inner work. Don't look outwardly for answers. Know yourself.
