' Liberation is ordinary '...


The seeker cannot help seeing liberation as magical and creating fantastical imaginings about it.

We yearn for gifts that we think liberation will bring.

This may make us prey to every passing guru, spiritual teacher and mantra salesman.

But in liberation it is seen that liberation is entirely ordinary but also wonderful.

This is a paradox.

The seeing of liberation is simply everyday life, like a squirrel on a tree trunk, with the veil of seeking taken away.

The roller-coaster of the neurotic mind becomes a gentle wonderment.
