A kōan (公案?)/ˈkoʊ.ɑːn/; Chinese: 公案; pinyin: gōng'àn; Korean: 공안 (kong'an); Vietnamese: công án) is a story, dialogue, question, or statement, which is used in Zen practice to provoke the "great doubt" and test a student's progress in Zen practice.
On our road to waking up we must accept no masters, no greater than thous no better-thans. So, if on that road to enlightenment you meet Buddha do not bow.
Part of what will happen in this course of disclosure - and should happen- is the wrecking of all gods, all others that offer to 'fix' us or the situation.
We are talking about spiritual adulthood here. The type that arises from inside and knows. The type that has not been externally informed. The type that has no dogma or rules except that of the recognition of the heart.
We on this earth have with in us all the 'powers' we will ever need, should we choose to access them. Wise is the person who sees and recognizes the walls that have been built to keep us from the recognition of our own divine nature. We are slowly becoming aware of this as the cultural memes can attest.
There is a very sly fight going on right now for the sovereignty of all of us. A technological war that if won, will give us all the 'powers' we could ever want - even though we already have them, but refuse to look at them because of training. If and when they accomplish this, every last hope of a true spiritual human evolution will vanish forever.
There is a right use of technology, don't get me wrong on this, but there is a much greater risk in jumping the gun and getting powers the easy way. https://alsionsbells.wordpress.com/2016/01/11/organic-consciousness-vs-viagra-consciousness-the-trans-human-agenda/
I reposted this on Face book today because I thought it was excellent, it also talks about how human kind has is backwards, we must save our own souls, we must grow up and we must do this post haste. http://howtoexitthematrix.com/2016/06/13/kindling-the-divine-spark-the-secret-to-awakening/. It links very well to the video below. This is some heady, heavy stuff, but you are up to it - I know you are
This is a very good interview by Kerry Cassidy of the Ruiner. I know he gave himself a bad name by the potent blogs he writes - but they are nothing more than the above Zen Koan. They are meant to awaken your thoughts, and thereby your perceptions. In listening I found that is he soft spoken erudite and wise. Please enjoy .
