i love what adyashanti said here:
"the odd thing about spiritual awakening is; the thing that wakes up, is not the thing that's searching"
that's exactly how i think "enlightenment" is. this ego, this me, that searches isn't what it's all about at all, that bit isn't going to have a realisation, it's the "other" bit! :) i love how he said it so concisely! :) brings me much clarity.
