Million Dollars or Enlightenment?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Guest guest

Some seek a million dollars, and some seek salvation. So if you had the

choice (which you don't), I would suggest that you seek a million dollars

because if you get a million dollars, there will be someone to enjoy those

million dollars. But when enlightenment happens, there will be no " one " to

enjoy anything.

Hi Sultan,

This is not one of Ramesh best examples, I guess even

enlightened beings have bad days too. Eh?

 

When one stops believing in a separate self, does

enjoyment stop? When one lacks the notion of a self

is one Joyless? An infant who hasn't self awareness

yet, enjoys things more than an adult. Maybe to Ramesh

who was a banker, a million bucks means a lot, or

maybe

this only speaks volumes about his realization. Who

knows, who cares?

What Ramesh is saying is that in enlightenment there is only being

without separate beings?

this is very nice example of speculation, so you can

see how ramesh use thinking mind perfectly ...

 

ramanaæ body also enjoyed peanuts at the morning,

maharajæ body also enjoyed bedees, so ramesh can talk

so nice words, but be very careful, in all sect is

just this procedure heppening!

All true, but also, for the enlightened, there is no perception of need that

can be fulfilled since all is already contained within the Self. The duality

of fulfilled/not fulfilled is seen for the perceptual illusion of mind that

it is.
