Our true countenance beyond all masks

“Getting rid of masks and unlearning everything takes time and great effort.”- says Nirmal.

In this our dimension governed by time and linearity, this is doubtelessly true. Without effort and perseverance, we come nowhere.

On the other hand…

Behind all our masks there is the radiant countenance…without a face there would be no masks to be attached…

The paradox is that yes, the masks are seemingly there, and yet, they are not…as the masks come and go, but the countenance Always remains.

So if we assume that the masks are simply some kind of illusion – false attachments, to put it simply – then the unlearning needs neither time nor effort…

The realization can happen Now…Lo!… It´s here!

But  being so deeply identified with our emotional and mental offsprings, we can´t perceive our true radiant face…We have no idea it is here…as we´ve never seen it.

Enlightenment is dropping all the masks at once…but the thing is that we can´t make this happen…that´s why we are stuck in time and effort…

Thing is that we need all this effort and perseverance, in order to understand that neither effort nor perseverance is ultimately needed.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
