Worthy Of The Wall

File under: Notable Quotables

We've decided to launch a new feature at Guruphiliac: Worthy of the Wall. These will be sayings and quotes we encounter which speak to the purpose of this blog, which is to remove from spiritual culture all the occluding nonsense hapless seekers are stuffing their heads with in their rush to become like their flimflamming gurus.

The first quote is by Jan Barendrecht, a longtime online denizen of several popular nonduality and gurubusting forums:

"There is no level of "enlightenment" but there are many levels of
conditioning and some will last a lifetime or, as some suppose, even
longer than that."

Jan Barendrecht is not a fan of the "I" grammatical tool in his writings, so when he says "as some suppose", it does not necessarily mean "as some deluded religious fanatics suppose".

I suggest another feature as "Worthy of The Gutter" quotes, which are inane cliches. Here are my entries:

1. "Love all; serve all".
2. "There is nothing to know because knower is known and known is actually unknown."
3. "Love is silence and therefore you grow in silent love."
4. "Silence is your true nature."...

OK, I am not sure if the last one falls into the gutter category, but what the heck! It has been repeated so many times that it has lost any meaning. I am sick of them all!!

"Good and evil have no self nature;
Holy and unholy are empty names;
In front of the door is the land of stillness and light;
Spring comes, the grass grows by itself."

Zen Master Seung Sahn

"If you want to understand all the Buddhas of the past, present, and future, then you should view the whole universe as being created by mind alone."

Avatamsaka Sutra

What is unknown becomes known as we become the mystery.
