spiritual enlightement

There is no journey to enlightenment.

In the YouTube video by J. Krishnamurti about Enlightenment, he explains that enlightement to wake up to something.”To wake up to what? To be enlightened about what?” He then explains how enlightement means to wake up to the truth about the psychological structure that has accepted time.

Eckhart Tolle, explains how Enlightenment is something we already are every present moment. It is not something you can add. It is the ego-less state. Which means to realize that there is no-self and to understand the nature of your present reality very very well. Studying reality will give you the direct experience of realizing that you are IT. Give up the search, he says, it is not something you can reach in the future.

The word Enlightenment has been used many times in both religion and spiritual cults. The new age movement loves to throw this word around in an attempt to compete. It has been explained as reaching a godlike and divine state, beyond our simple human understanding. Which is a very vague explanation that only creates illusion and expectations.

I used to be desperately seeking for “Enlightenment”, wanting to reach this superhuman state. My reasons where quite simple; 1. i disliked myself as i was , 2. i disliked the world. It was my way of feeling like i could escape it somehow.

After my LSD experience a whole new world opened up for me. And months after i still reap the benefits of it, having insights after insights. The most recent one is was about how we are never fully in touch with reality as it is. We dream our way through life thinking, fantasizing. We live on auto-pilot, totally unaware of the present moment.

I also started to have more and more moment where my focus went to the present moment for a short while. I found so much peace in these moments, that i decided to pick up meditation again and mindfulness practice.

Soon i discovered that it’s not so much about doing something. But more about learning how to just be. In this state of just being…i got a tiny glimpse of what it’s like to have no self without using any psychedelics. Who you truly are…is raw experience…and we are all that. Nothing is separate. Having experienced this first hand, changed my world upside down.

To be honest, after this it only feels like i just started on my journey. It feels very different this time. Like i am not chasing some fantasy. I am merely letting go. I used to think i was so close to the end of my journey, but now i realize how ignorant this was. I opened myself up to the fact that i know nothing, and i am gonna study the present moment as best as i can.

In the book “Mastering the core teachings of the buddha: An unusually hardcore dharma book” by Daniel Ingram. That the three most important things one can realize in studying the present moment are 1. no self , 2. impermanence, 3. unsatisfactory.

So..in other words, there is no search for Enlightenment. Nobody else can teach you to realize it. It is an insight you get by looking deeply into the present moment. Which is why is why a better word for it would be “woken up” to truth.

I've been sharing just about all of your renora arts with my friends we all love them so much I was wondering, if you're up for it, could you draw Ren waking up in bed to find nora forced herself into little spoon position and while she's all blushing cause they're cuddling Ren is just like "not again"

Thank you so much! I started working on it and then It got better by itself. I’m sorry.

Jaune has reached spiritual enlightement by seeing some shit.



MESSAGE FROM THE ARTIST - I’ve seen things in this life that I am incapable of translating into words. In my practice I have visited realms where the imagination ends, and the terrifying beauty of infinity unfolds over and over again. If I could distill into words exactly what motivates me to create the art that I make than it would not be worth making it. Instead I have chosen the Pen.

Honestly I don’t know why I make this art, or what compels me to keep creating it; it’s a mystery I intend to pursue for the rest of my life, and each image brings me closer to the Ultimate Truth.  ~ Android

Maybe we shouldn't judge someone we don't know based on conjecture.

Okay this one really depends on who you’re talking about, Alex or Taylor. Anyway, let’s have a nice friendly chat about both - they are a couple, after all.

Conjectures, conjectures, conjectures… Look, with Taylor it’s easy. Just go to her Instagram account and scroll down. Scroll all the way down until you find spiritual enlightment or become an ignorant white bitch, you know, it depends.

With Alex… I mean, I know most people in this fandom will protect him till their final breath. But it’s not a discussion about whether he’s a good or bad person, that’s some grey fucking area, we don’t know him personally. What we do know is the person he’s dating, that’s pretty obvious. He doesn’t tolerate her, he lives with her. VOLUNTARILY. Yeah, let that sink in. Unless she’s blackmailing him, of course, or some sniper keeps him at gunpoint at all times, which I highly doubt.

And then, once again, go to her Instagram for another round of enlightment. Beautiful, isn’t it? Alex is rich. Alex is successful. Alex doesn’t really talk much about anything, but his actions and choices speak for themselves. Like his choice of girlfriend. I hope he’s a good person, at heart, but what we have here doesn’t look so good. Yet, we shouldn’t skip to conclusions until one of us actually knows for sure. On the other hand, we have Taylor. Eeeeh. Hope is all we got now, isn’t it?
