It isn't by getting out of the world that we become enlightened, but by getting into the world … by getting so tuned in that we can ride the waves of our existence and never get tossed because we become the waves.

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

When I attained absolute, perfect enlightenment, I attained absolutely nothing. That is why it is called absolute, perfect enlightenment.
You always already are enlightened spirit, and therefore to seek spirit is simply to deny spirit.
The very desire to seek spiritual enlightenment is in fact nothing but the grasping tendency of the ego itself, and thus the very search for enlightenment prevents it. The 'perfect practice' is therefore not to search for enlightenment but to inquire into the motive for seeking itself. You obviously seek in order to avoid the present, and yet the present alone holds the answer: to seek forever is to miss the point forever.
