true being inherent lucid clarity



    All the errant notions of the past are rooted in the dysfunctional discriminative capacity of the mind.   The dichotomous view is an errant view; duality is a seeming appearance.   The nondual, non-dichotomous view is the right view, the pure view; nonduality is the actuality, the vast, the true.   To spontaneously abandon and relinquish the untrue dualistic view is possible through understanding only, yet this understanding remains stable only through practice of remembering, through continuous apperception.   This is not going to be easy, obviously, because of such powerful habits of the conditioned mind. Getting to the point of awake awareness where arising thoughts do not distract us so much anymore, our mindful state of contemplation becomes more and more stable and we are able to observe and witness everything with a knowing understanding without falling into a superimposed bias of preference and prejudice that encumbers our perceptions.

    Inherent clarity is without distraction or dream, and when we look deep inside ourselves we find our true being, our inherent lucid clarity.  We don’t need to modify or change or attain anything, because when we “find” our real Self we recognize we were never “lost”.  It is impossible that we could ever lose or leave our real center.   Enlightenment and non-enlightenment are only aspects of the existential flow of the Tao, aspects of the same womb of Becoming, and all beings already abide in the eternity of the now moment and are already at the center, at nirvana.  Our conditionings and our presuppositions make it seem not so.   The state of enlightenment, liberation, and spiritual freedom is not something attainable by motivational practices per se, because motivational practices are based in the delusive ego, which is pseudo-identity. Nor can these ultimate states be created simply because of the fact that they are already present.  Enlightenment and liberation have no corporeal or objective aspects that can be perceived; there are no characteristic marks that can be identified by the mentality or senses of persons who are habituated in the ego-based dualistic view. Differences in the states of enlightenment and non-enlightenment do seemingly exist to a discriminatively dysfunctional perceiver attached to predispositions and karmic thoughts, but it is only this attachment that creates the distinctions, nothing else.
