I can't be objective but I'll share some thoughts when I get the baby to sleep...Jaggi offered me an opportunity...i accepted with condition...from that moment on, my life went to shit and the end of my search.
I remember when I was living in Florida, my father and I walking out of a 711,
I had my pixie stick opened before we got to the car..
raising my head to open my mouth, I happened to look up into the sky...
I don't know what happened that
moment but at age 7, I began looking and questioning.
Obsession with enlightment has taken me down too many dead end roads....I said the hell with it all!
I'll share more in a bit, but until then,
listen to this one....he recently passed away...
he's something else, lol
A quote from him
If you have the courage to touch
life for the first time, you will
never know what hit you. Everything man
has thought, felt and experienced is gone,
and nothing is put in its place."
"Whether you are interested in Moksha,
iberation, Freedom, Transformation, you name
it, you are interested in happiness
without one moment of unhappiness,
pleasure without pain, it is the same thing."
"We don't want to be free from fear.
All that we want to do is to play games
with it and talk about freeing ourselves from fear."
"Your constant utilization of thought
to give continuity to your separate
self is 'you'. There is nothing there
inside you other than that."
"When the movement in the direction of
becoming something other than what you
are isn't there any more, you are not in conflict with yourself."
This written after his death:
I view UG as a hero of humankind. What he has said is best understood as a critique of the sad state of affairs the human race has fallen into, rather than an addition to the spiritual literature. That having been said, he clearly was a great Sage, which is the highest expression of our human potential. He remains by far the finest example of a human being that I have ever meet or heard of in our era.
In all the fourty years I knew him,
I never saw the slightest fault in
his integrity. His loyalty to his
friends was off the charts. He could
have had a large organization, and
chose instead to leave nothing behind.
He never made a dime from the books
people published based upon what he
said. I have no doubt that he transcended
J.Krishnamurti in every way. I believe
that JK was the harbinger for UG's appearence
and there is much to be learned by the study of their joint story.
For those of you who are new to the subject,
I suggest you go to the original material
on the Web. UG can be very hard to take. This
is because we are in the Matrix. Remember,
Neo had a very hard time at first when Morpheus
told him where he was at. UG's devotion was, and is to the “Neo” in all of us.
