The Path of
By Jafree Ozwald
"God is there only if you surrender. Surrender
makes anything God. Surrender gives you the eyes, and everything that
is brought to these eyes becomes Divine." ~ Osho
To reach into this
awesome sacred moment, there must be no reaching. One most let
everything go to totally arrive. It is only through the art of
surrender that we can relax and rest in the heart of God.
Enlightened Zen is what enlightenment is truly about. It is
becoming self-realized. Realizing that you are the Big Beautiful
Amazing Divine God-Self and the small insignificant struggling
small self. You are both and neither. They cancel each other
out, and when you experience this you discover the greatest
Truth of all. That you are the enlightened conscious space which
contains it all.
The mind is always
blinding us from the Truth. It is constantly looking, busy
seeking elsewhere, searching for something, anything it can find
to satisfy it's longings. So it is not going to be so obvious to
you that you have The Seed already inside you to blossom into a
fully Awakened Divine God Being. In this moment, the sacred
Divine Being that you are is already here now, yet hidden behind
this clouded judgmental mind.
Perhaps you cannot see yourself as
"enlightened" because the mind has labeled you as something much less
than this. Yet, enlightenment is simply a constant state of
realization that the Divine God Source is all around you, and flowing
through every breath and thought.
To be in this
state of realization requires only one simple thing. Surrender.
Total and complete surrender to this perfect zen moment. This is
the path of enlightened zen. Realizing that you are the Divine
and that which believes it is not divine, and surrendering to
something that is beyond them both.
Enlightened Zen can happen at any moment. A walk through the
garden, doing the dishes, driving to work or making love. It is
simply the effortless practice of being here now with full
Zen is one of the most ancient practices to attaining enlightenment
and reaching a higher level of consciousness. It is the most simple
and effortless path to total liberation, that involves no-effort,
no-thought, and literally no-mind.
The Enlightened Zen mind is not a dull, bored mind. In fact, it is
quite the opposite. It is so vigilantly focused in the NOW that it is
sharper than a sharpest razors edge.
An enlightened zen
mind is not just free from all fear, doubt and worry, it is free
from all thoughts completely. It is a self-realized mind, that
has realized what the real Self actually is. It can be fully
present to each life experience, thought, and bodily sensation
without getting over identified with them.
happening now is the path to God, yet the enlightened zen mind
is not searching for God but finding it through every moment. It
is full of awe and wonder for it sees that everything in this
Universe is the Divine.
It feels how the
real is not the plastic, and from seeing this it can live in a
constant state of enjoyment. The enlightened zen mind feels
everything deeply. Embracing that every living thing around us
was born from sex. The merging of the divine masculine and
divine feminine. It feels how all life is overflowing with a
divine love and erotic sensuality.
An Enlightened Zen lifestyle finds an inner balance within every
situation and person. It is free from desires, yet still enjoys
the experience of "wanting" without being attached. The
Enlightened Zen being is truly the master of this existence,
because it is liberated from the mind. It is surrendered to the
Divine, and has given up the perpetual search, and grasping for

attention to the conscious awareness which is reading. This
is the "Enlightened Zen reading technique" and playing
with it will reveal to you the great
mystery of Enlightenment they
are all pointing towards.
There is nothing lacking in you!
You are no different than a Buddha.
-Zen Master Tao-Hsin
accepting that the ego is a fabricated
illusion do we walk the Buddha's way. - Dogen
is beyond concepts.
No one has ever attained it. -Ying-an
everything is seen as One, we return to the Source
and stay where we have always been.. -Seng-t'san
Here it is -
Start thinking about it and you miss it. -Huang-po
If you love
the sacred and despise the ordinary,
you are still bobbing in the ocean of delusion - Linji
quotes are from Bodhidharma,
the official "founder" of Zen.
Not thinking about anything is Zen.
Once you know this, walking, standing,
sitting, or lying down, everything you do is Zen.
Know that the
empty mind can see the Buddha...
Using the mind
to look for reality is delusion.
Not using the mind to look for reality is awareness.
Freeing oneself from the mind is total liberation.
When the mind
is the master, you live in a hell.
When you are the master of your mind,
you live in the land of the Buddhas.
Mind creates all delusion. Consciousness
penetrates the mind and transforms all delusion.
If you use the Mind to study Reality,
you won't understand Mind or Reality.
If you study Reality without using mind,
you'll understand both.
The Mind and the world are opposites,
and vision arises where they meet.
When your Mind doesn't stir inside,
the world doesn't arise outside.
When the world and the Mind are both transparent,
you have true vision. Such vision is the
understanding of the Buddha.
