looking at things from a different dimension

looking at things from a different dimension

Really, it is so important for us to get used to this idea that this confusion that we have is definitely something that we can awaken from. It’s that easy actually. It is that easy. Try to educate yourself and train yourself not thinking enlightenment in terms of hallows, lights, omniscience, powers, six arms, going from here to Delhi without any passports, tickets or train. Just flying there. Try to educate yourself and think this way. Enlightenment is basically awakening, it really frees you from suffering. It is like a small child looking at a burning iron, hot, burning. And the small child is about to touch this. The parent say, no no, don’t touch this, this will burn you. At that time, in a way there is a little bit of an enlightenment because suddenly the baby knows this is really dangerous. From that knowledge has released the baby from potential dangerous situation. All we need to know, really, it is a matter of looking at things from a different dimension. And this is very possible.
