I am happy to share the names and websites of mentors and teachers who helped me by writing and speaking words that confounded my brain and mental processes while challenging and unraveling the personal identity, beliefs, and attitudes preventing me from fully maturing and seeing clearly what is.
These paradoxical, even painful reads seemed to have been just what I needed to move this character more deeply into self-inquiry and perceive the identity traps needing to be explored and dissolved before working towards backing away from all that is not truth.
There is no such event as enlightenment as there is no personal self to claim such a mental concept. Exposing the myth of the personal self opens wide the portal of deeply programmed and obscured emotions and beliefs waiting to be healed and dissolved in the light of pure aware presence.
I offer my deepest gratitude and respect for these beings of light, both past and present.
Also below are a few helpful links about the science of the brain, the nature of the mental processes/mind, and other topics providing significant insight along the pathless path to what is obvious yet is hidden in plain sight.
